An elderly woman was killed after being knocked down by a car in Birkhill on Monday.
The incident occurred on Dronley Road, which leads from the Coupar Angus Road to the village primary school, around 2pm.
Police confirmed the victim was a pedestrian who died after being knocked down by a Vauxhall Corsa.
Paramedics treated the woman on the road but were unable to save her life.
Police closed the road as their investigations into the accident began.
Skid marks could be seen along the kerb of the pavement on the westbound side of the road.
The Vauxhall had come to a stop in the driveway of 8 Dronley Road on the opposite side of the street.
Frances Harrison and her husband Cy were babysitting their three young grandchildren in the house when the accident occurred – but heard nothing.
She said: “We never heard a thing. At first we thought somebody has just parked for the school but then saw there was somebody on the road being treated.
“We just presumed it was the driver of the car.”
Three ambulances and several police cars all attended the incident.
An elderly woman was seen being comforted by a man in one of the ambulances before it was driven away from Birkhill. It is believed the distraught woman had been the driver of the car.
A police officer was also later seen leading a distraught younger woman away from the scene of the crash.
