Elderly men die trying to cross roads
TWO elderly men are dead after they were struck by vehicles while crossing roads in separate incidents yesterday (Monday).
An 85-year-old man died in Sydney’s Liverpool Hospital after he was hit by a bus in suburban Bankstown about 5:40pm.
And a 76-year-old man died about 8:20am when he was struck by a car at Evans Head on the North Coast.
The 46-year-old female driver, the car’s only occupant, stopped the vehicle, went to the man’s aid and called emergency services, police say.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Reports will be prepared for the Coroner.
