A POST-MORTEM WILL be carried out today on a 74-year-old woman who died after being hit by her own car in Clare yesterday.

The woman was loading shopping into her car outside a supermarket in Ennis on Sunday afternoon when the vehicle rolled backwards, hitting her.

The woman’s two grandchildren were with her when the freak accident happened and are being treated for shock. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The post-mortem will take place later today at Limerick Regional Hospital.

Gardaí investigating the death have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
