Is my sentence grammatically correct? I have used "at the site", and I am wondering if it should be "on the site".


A young woman was hit by a car driving at high speed and died at the site.

On the spot would be more idiomatic. At the site doesn't work.

I would suggest "… and died at the scene".

"hit by a car" is natural in your main sentence but note that you used "hit by the​ car" in your title.
