Police have named her as Anne Marie McCreadie, of Sark Close, Lowry Hill.

She suffered serious pelvic injuries after a car mounted the pavement and collided with her.

Mrs McCreadie - who was about six months pregnant - had been walking along Wilson Row, near the town centre, with her husband and a male friend when the accident happened at about 6.30pm.

The 29-year-old was rushed to Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary by ambulance but she - and her unborn child - lost their fight for life at the hospital.

An investigation into her death has now been launched.

The male driver of the BMW was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. No details about him have been disclosed.

He was questioned by police in Carlisle.

Police are appealing for witnesses and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a blue BMW coupe being driven in the area at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information should contact officers on 0845 3300247.
