Woman held over death of OAP
Tuesday 27 December 2011
A 27-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the death of an elderly man who was hit by a car outside a supermarket.
West Midlands Police said the pedestrian, thought to be aged 76, was struck by the vehicle outside a Co-op store in Stirchley, Birmingham, at about 10am and died in hospital a short time later.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said the pensioner was given a very high level of first aid by staff from the supermarket before the arrival of emergency crews.
The spokesman said: "The ambulance staff worked to stabilise the man's condition before taking him on blue lights to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, where medics were on standby for his arrival.
"Sadly, despite all of the efforts, it was not possible to save him and he was confirmed dead a short time later."
Anyone who witnessed the incident in Hazelwell Street is urged to contact traffic officers in the Aston-based collision investigation unit on 0345 113 5000.
