An elderly woman was treated by paramedics after she was struck by a vehicle last week.

Tatura police Sergeant Darryl Phillips said a car was reversing from a Albert St driveway about 4pm when the woman was stuck.

‘‘The woman suffered minor injuries and was attended to by ambulance officers,’’ Sgt Phillips said.

‘‘She did not require hospitalisation.’’

A 32-year-old Tatura man received a penalty notice and fine for $141.

Police said four other motorists were booked for speeding, one for failing to display L-plates, one for using a mobile phone while driving, one for carrying an unrestrained passenger under the age of 16 and one, a Tatura male, for exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol.

Fines issued came to $2200 and a total of 14 demerit points were lost.

Meanwhile, a 14-year-old Tatura youth has been summonsed to appear in a Childrens’ Court on November 26 following an investigation into a graffiti attack on the new concrete drainage system at the rear of Hogan St.

Police are also investigating the theft of four flags from Hill Top Golf and Country Club overnight Monday, November 5. Sgt Phillips said the flags were valued at $400.
