Fiance held after tiff ends in death

A popular Port Elizabeth woman died in a bizarre tragedy when she was run down allegedly by a car driven by her fiance of just more than a month.

The tight-knit Colleen Glen and Seaview communities outside of Port Elizabeth were still in shock yesterday following the death of Claire Richardson, 40, on Beachview Road in the early hours of Saturday.

Richardson, of Beachview, was struck by a car shortly after leaving the Dizzy Dolphin pub in Seaview at about 2am.

According to residents of Colleen Glen – where she previously worked at the Elephant Walk Restaurant – and Seaview, Richardson had decided to walk home, allegedly after an altercation with her fiance, to whom she had become engaged in December.
