Man arrested over murder of singer Joan Jett
One of Scotland’s most celebrated vocalists died in hospital Thursday after being hit by a car in Co Dumfries, the first fatal accident involving a single act since the 1970s.
In an article published in her tribute magazine her brother Richard Jett said the 50-year-old “was probably not aware of what was going on outside her van and could have easily survived.”
Police believe the car hit and killed her at 4:50 p.m. on Thursday while she was crossing a road when the driver became distracted and hit her.
The singer’s brother said she had been struck by the van because of what she had written in it.
She was pronounced dead at Glasgow University Hospital at 8 p.m. on Thursday. Her funeral will be held Monday at the Li마사지nn-Kirkwood Memorial Garden, located in Derry.
