Police have confirmed the tragic death of a 37-year-old woman in a small industrial area in Broome was a result of being struck by a vehicle.

Major Crash specialist officers travelled to Broome to assist with the ongoing investigation surrounding the woman’s death and have established the woman died as a result of injuries she sustained when she was hit by a car last Tuesday night on Clementson Street.

In a statement on social media this morning, Broome Police Officer in Charge Senior Sergeant Dave Whitnell said several people have been interviewed in relation to the death but no criminal charges have been preferred at this time.

“We would appreciate if anybody with information could make contact with Crimestoppers,” the statement read.

The update comes a week after police began their investigation into the woman’s death after police were called after 11pm last Tuesday night when a group of people that were driving in the area found the woman lying on the road badly injured.

Police and St John Ambulance performed CPR but the woman died shortly after arriving in hospital.

Internal Affairs detectives were also called to town as part of the investigation, as a result of the woman “coming into contact” with police earlier in the night.

It is understood the woman was intoxicated and was dropped off by police near Clementson Street after the incident in the CBD.
