POLICE investigating the death of a woman killed in Redditch last week are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Officers were called at 5.45am on August 26 to reports that a black Toyota Avensis estate had collided with a pedestrian on Auxerre Avenue in Redditch.

Sadly the pedestrian, 28-year-old Hannah Smith, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota Avensis, a 34-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He has since been released under investigation.

Sergeant Owen Atwell from West Mercia Police said: "While investigations are ongoing, we are appealing for any witnesses who may have been in the area at the time of the incident and may have dash cam footage to please come forward.

"We would particularly like to speak to the driver of a blue Ford Fiesta car, believed to believe a 2013 or later sports technology (ST) model who was seen driving down Auxerre Avenue at around the time of the incident as we believe they may be a key witness and could help with our enquiries."

Any witnesses are asked to contact West Mercia Police on 101 quoting reference 133s of 26 August 2019.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
