The family of a woman tragically killed as she crossed a Coventry road have thanked the public for the support shown to them.

In a touching tribute to their daughter, the family of Hannah Bowden said: “The Bowden family are utterly devastated at the loss of our beautiful Hannah, who was tragically taken from us on Monday evening.

“The family appreciate all the support given at this difficult time.”

Hannah, aged 24, from the Cheylesmore area of the city, was killed as she crossed Sky Blue Way just after 9pm on Monday, August 17.

She died in hospital as a result of the injuries she sustained when she was hit by a black Ford S-Max car.

The driver of the car, a 32-year-old man from the Copsewood area was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He was later released on police bail while inquiries continue.

Sergeant Steve Newbury, from the Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Hannah’s family are devastated by the loss of their loved one and we’re doing everything we can to help them understand what happened on Monday night.

“With this in mind, I would ask that anyone who was in the area and has not yet spoken to my team to get in touch.”

Anyone with information which may help Sgt Newbury should call police on 101.
