A 66-year-old woman has been reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with a crash last month involving a 90-year-old Westwood grandmother.
Isabella Thomson was knocked down on Quebec Drive, yards from her home in Fraser River Tower.
The accident, which is believed to have involved a silver people carrier, happened around 5pm on November 20. Mrs Thomson was walking home after a visit to her local pharmacy. The car appeared to stop before driving away as horrified motorists and passers-by rushed to the pensioner’s aid. She was taken to Hairmyres Hospital where she underwent surgery on her leg and foot.
She remains in the hospital and a spokesman for NHS Lanarkshire described her condition as “stable”.
The accident led to a police appeal for the driver involved and for witnesses to the accident to come forward.
On Monday police announced a 66-year-old woman had been traced in connection with the accident and a report will now be submitted to the procurator fiscal at Hamilton.
