PC Sarah Phillips from Roads Policing said: ‘I would like to speak to the driver of the car which was in collision with the pedestrian and also with the driver of the second vehicle who stopped at the scene shortly after the incident.

The vehicle which was in collision with the pedestrian appears to have left skid marks at the scene which would have caused some noise and may have been heard by nearby residents. I would ask anyone who saw or heard anything in the area at around the time of the collision to contact me via the 101 number.
