Further appeal following fatal collision

Officers investigating a collision in which a 28-year-old woman died are asking anyone who may have seen the car involved to contact them.

At around 1.55am this morning (Saturday 13 October), a grey Fiat Bravo was travelling along St Mary’s Road, towards London Road, when it was in collision with a 28-year-old woman crossing the road.

The woman was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. Her family continue to be supported by specialist officers.

Sergeant Richard Hunter, investigating the collision, said: “The driver of the car failed to stop at the scene and the vehicle was later found burnt out in the Heeley area.

“The car was quite distinctive, in that it had only one working headlight, and we believe it travelled along Bramall Lane, past the BP garage and towards Heeley after the collision.

“The area at the time was quite busy and we are keen to speak to anyone who saw the car in the early hours of this morning, particularly any taxi drivers who may have dashcam footage. We would also like to speak to anyone who saw someone filling a portable container with petrol at petrol stations in the local area between the approximate times of 1.55-4am.”

A 51-year-old man arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop in connection with the collision remains in police custody.

Anyone who has information that could assist with enquiries is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 98 of 13 October 2018.
