Officers are appealing for witnesses after a woman passed away following a collision in the Hester’s Way area of Cheltenham last week.
Police were called yesterday evening (Sunday) with a report that a woman in her 60s had passed away after being involved in a collision on Friday afternoon (2 June).
Enquiries established that the collision, which involved a white BMW 1 series, took place while the woman was crossing the road on the corner of Bramley Road at the junction with Tanners Road at around 12pm on the day.
The victim had sustained leg and foot injuries and was taken home by the driver of the car before relatives took her to Cheltenham General Hospital for treatment. She was later discharged and returned home before passing away.
Officers from the Roads Policing Unit conducted enquiries to identify the driver of the BMW and have since arrested a 21-year-old man and 22-year-old woman, both from Scotland, on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.
Officers would now like speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or has dashcam/CCTV footage which may help with the investigation.
