Tribute paid following fatal collision - Redditch

The family of a woman who died in a collision in Redditch has paid tribute to her.

Officers were called to Auxerre Avenue in Redditch at around 5.45am on Monday (26 August) following reports of a collision between a black Toyota Avensis estate and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene and has today (Friday) been named as 28-year-old Hannah Smith from Redditch.

Paying tribute, her family said: "Hannah, not only were you our daughter and sister, you were also our best friend. You were kind and caring, and would do anything for anyone. You made us laugh and cry.

"Hannah, you will be missed and you will be in our hearts and thoughts now, and always. Sleep well darling Hannah. Love as always."

Her family and friends have asked their privacy be respected at this difficult time.

Officers remain keen to speak with anyone who saw the incident, was in the area at the time, or has dashcam footage of the collision.

"We would particularly like to speak to the driver of a blue Ford Fiesta car, believed to believe a 2013 or later sports technology (ST) model who was seen driving down Auxerre Avenue at around the time of the incident as we believe they may be a key witness and could help with our enquiries."

Anyone with any information is asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 133s of 26 August 2019.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
