THREE people were killed and a man is fighting for his life after they were hit by a car on Boxing Day.
Two women, 53 and 54, and a 59-year-old man died when a Volvo crashed into them.

Mourners last night spoke of the impact on the former mining community in Askern, Doncaster.
One said: "They were a brilliant family. They had just been out to the Miners' Welfare."
A local woman added: "I feel numb. Everyone is in shock. We will rally round the family."
Flowers were left in tribute to the victims, thought to be two couples, at the scene in South Yorkshire. A man, 24, was being quizzed on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
There was more tragedy on Saturday as a man and woman died when their car collided with a horse box near Stow-on-the-Wold in Gloucestershire.
