11-year-old girl hit by car in Coventry has died in hospital

A GIRL who was hit by a car in Coventry last week has died.

The 11-year-old passed away in the early hours of this morning.

She was struck by a Toyota Verso on Tamworth Road, near the junction of Waste Lane, around 6.10pm on Thursday (October 22).

The girl was rushed to hospital where she sadly passed away this morning.

The 53-year-old driver of the Verso remained at the scene, but was not spoken to at the time as he required medical attention.

Police will be contacting him in due course as officers try to ascertain what happened.

The family of the girl is now being supported by specialist officers as the investigation continues.

A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: “We’re keen to hear from anyone with dash cam footage, or who was in the area at the time and has not spoken to us already.”

Anyone with information shall call 101 or submit it via live chat at west-midlands.police.uk
