A PENSIONER has died following a collision with a car in Alvechurch.

The man, a pedestrian in his 70s, was hit by a Jaguar X-type vehicle on the A441 Redditch Road, near to the Hopwood House pub in Alvechurch, shortly after 6.15am on December 5.

Emergency services, including ambulance and police, were in attendance but the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a man in cardiac arrest having suffered serious injuries in the collision.

“CPR was already being performed by an off-duty nurse. Ambulance staff took over and administered advanced life support.

“However, unfortunately it became apparent that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”

His next of kin have been informed and West Mercia Police are appealing for witnesses.

PC Owen Atwell said: "Investigating officers are trying to establish the circumstances leading up to the incident, and are therefore appealing for anyone who may have been within the area and seen the vehicle or pedestrian prior to the incident, to come forward.

"The man was wearing blue jeans with a dark blue fleece and a black beanie hat and was carrying a white Tesco, 'bag for life style' carrier bag."

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident 64S of December 5.
