Main article content
Officers are continuing to appeal for information regarding a fatal non-stop collision in Kings Bromley involving a woman in her 80s and want your help to trace the vehicle involved.
We were called at 7.45pm on Thursday 19 October following reports of a collision involving a pedestrian and a van on Yoxall Road (A515), at the junction with Church Lane. It is believed the collision happened between 7.30pm and 7.40pm.
Sadly, the woman was pronounced dead by paramedics a short time later. Her next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially-trained officers.
After further investigations we believe the vehicle involved was one of three different models of van – a Vauxhall Movano, Renault Master or Nissan MV400 registered between 2010 and 2019. We believe this as the van’s driver side wing mirror housing came off as a result of the collision and the type used is standard for those three models of van.
Based on CCTV analysis we also believe the van had been travelling down the A515 Yoxall Road in the direction of Kings Bromley before turning left onto the A513 Alrewas Road towards Alrewas.
Detective Chief Inspector Alan Lyford from Staffordshire Police said: “Can anyone who lives in this area please check any CCTV, dashcam or doorbell cameras they have for any footage of a white van on the Thursday evening? Have you seen a damaged white van in the area? Or did you see a vehicle acting suspiciously? If you think you know something, no matter how trivial, please do get in touch.”
