The family and friends of a retired nurse who died in a fatal collision in Preston have paid an emotional tribute to her.

 

The collision occurred at around 1.40pm on Monday, November 14th, on Sherwood Way, Fulwood, when a double decker bus collided with an 81-year-old woman.

 

The woman was taken to hospital with serious injuries but sadly passed away a short time later.

 

She has since been named as Carol Fisher, from Fulwood.

 

In a tribute her family have now said: “Carol Fisher was a much-loved Mum, Nan, Sister and a great friend to many.

 

“Carol was a retired auxiliary nurse at Fulwood Hall Hospital. She attended Fulwood Free Methodist Church and enjoyed helping out at a children's ministry and volunteering at a local charity shop in Fulwood.

 

“In her spare time Carol loved walking her beloved dog Milo and chatting to fellow dog walkers as she went.

 

“Carol was a truly beautiful lady inside and out, who was loved by all who knew her and was always available to help anyone who needed it.

 

“The news of Carol's tragic death has been devasting and she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.”

 

We are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision and are asking anybody who saw it, or who has dashcam or CCTV footage, to get in touch with us.

 

Sgt Marc Saysell, of the Lancashire Roads Policing Team, said: “First and foremost our thoughts are with Carol’s family and friends. We send them our deepest condolences at what is a truly awful time for them.

 

“Our investigation to establish exactly what occurred is still ongoing and we are asking anybody who saw the collision, or who has CCTV or dashcam of it, to come forward.”

 

Anyone with information is asked to contact 101, quoting log number 700 of November 14th.
