A WOMAN has been arrested and subsequently bailed after an 83-year-old man died after being hit by a car yesterday, Sunday, December 20, at Cookhill.

The collision occurred in Church Lane in the village and investigating officers from West Mercia Police are eager to hear from witnesses.

The senior citizen, a local man, was outside St Paul’s Church Hall when the incident, involving a Nissan X Trail 4×4, happened at approximately 5.30pm.

West Midlands Ambulance Service attended but sadly the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
