Girl, 11, dies in hospital after she was hit by car four days ago
An 11-year-old girl who was hit by a car has tragically died in hospital four days later.
The young pedestrian was struck at around 6.10pm on Thursday, October 22, on Tamworth Road in Coventry.
She was found critically injured and had to be rushed to hospital in a serious condition.
Police confirmed on Monday that the child sadly died in the early hours of the morning.
The 53-year-old driver of the Toyota Verso remained at the scene, but was not spoken to at the time as he required medical attention.
He will be spoken to in due course as police seek to establish the full circumstances of what happened.
A statement from West Midlands Police says: “The family of the girl is now being supported by specialist officers as our investigation continues.
“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.”
A spokesperson for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said after the incident: “Crews arrived to find a girl, the pedestrian, in a critical condition after coming into collision with a car, with bystander CPR already in progress.
“Staff then took over in administering life support to the patient whilst getting her on to the ambulance.
“She was then taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on blue lights and sirens with the doctor and critical care paramedic on board continuing treatment.
“The second patient, a man, believed to be the driver of the car, was also treated at the scene and conveyed to UHCW for further assessment.”
