A MAN arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving has been released under investigation after a woman was killed in Coventry.
The 64-year-old was in Foleshill Road, Foleshill, near the community centre and Lidl supermarket, when she was struck by a blue Subaru car just after 4pm on Friday (December 14).
She suffered very serious injuries and was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
The driver of the car, a 49-year-old Romanian national living in Coventry, stopped at the scene and provided a negative breath test.
He was arrested but was released yesterday (December 16) pending further investigations.
Detective sergeant Paul Hughes from West Midlands Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “We’re appealing for anyone who saw the collision or the Subaru being driven along Foleshill Road, towards Jimmy Hill Way, in the moments leading up to the collision.
“The victim is a local lady and her next of kin has been notified; our thoughts are with them at this very sad time.”
