A woman has been airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary for emergency treatment after being hit by a car in Boston Spa.

The 55-year-old woman was struck by the Toyota Auris outside the Stew & Oyster restaurant on the A659 High Street at about 3.15pm today.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police told the Yorkshire Evening Post that she had suffered potentially “life-changing” injuries in the incident.

The car is believed to have mounted a pavement before hitting the woman, who is from the Boston Spa area.

Motorists are being advised to avoid High Street as investigations continue into the incident.
