THIS is the 17-year-old girl who has died from her injuries five days after she was left fighting for her life after being hit by a car.

Sarah Jane Burke was critically injured when she was knocked down in Ormonde Street in Barnes as she crossed the road at 5.30pm last Tuesday.

She was treated by paramedics at the scene, just a short distance from her home in Cleveland Road, before being flown by the Great North Air Ambulance from Barnes Park to Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.
