AN elderly woman has died after being struck by a car in Ballarat on Thursday.
The woman, 92, was crossing Creswick Road about 10.40am when a car struck her in the northbound lane.
An off-duty police officer witnessed the incident and performed first aid until paramedics arrived.
Paramedics treated the woman at the scene for close to half an hour before she was taken to the Ballarat Airport by road ambulance, then flown to Melbourne.
She died at Royal Melbourne Hospital yesterday.
The female probationary driver returned a negative blood-alcohol reading, assisted police and is not expected to be charged.
