A SELFLESS woman who spent a month helping Queensland flood victims has been killed in a car accident with a police vehicle.
Gillian Harman, 48, was driving towards her home in Guyra, near Armidale, NSW, when a police vehicle responding to a Triple-0 call collided with her car.

The impact of the collision flipped Ms Harman’s Toyota sedan onto it’s side, and she died at the scene from horrific injuries.

Her mother Jan Harman told The Daily Telegraph Ms Harman was a hard-working and adored woman, who had just returned from a month of volunteering in QLD.

"She works for Centrelink ... they asked for volunteers to go up to QLD, and she said yes straight away," Mrs Harman said.

"That’s the sort of person she was," Mrs Harman said.

Ms Harman was driving home from work in Armidale on Wednesday night, when the accident happened at the intersection of Faulkner and Newton Sts in Armidale.

Police said two officers were on their way to an "urgent domestic dispute".

"The two male officers in the police van were able to get out. They tried to help the 48-year-old woman from Guyra who was the sole occupant of the sedan. She sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene," police said in a statement.

A critical incident team is investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident.
Sources told The Daily Telegraph they believe police were travelling at high speed and there was a question of whether police were using their lights and sirens.
As much as I feel sorry for the lady that died, they are sorta turning this against the police a lot.

I don't think there is any need to lay any blame on anyone or speculate until it has been investigated, even then the real blame would lie at whom ever was causing this 'urgent domestic dispute'.

With that logic, if you have to call an Ambulance and it crashes into a school bus and kills at 34kids inside, you're to blame?
