Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a fatal road traffic collision in Hemel Hempstead.
The collision occurred in Leighton Buzzard Road, at just after 10.50pm on Sunday, October 30, and involved a vehicle and a pedestrian.
The pedestrian, a woman aged in her 40s, sadly passed away.
The vehicle was not at the scene on police arrival and an extensive search of the area was carried it. It was later located and a man aged in his 80s was arrested. He remains in police custody at this time.
Detective Sergeant Ben Heath, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts are with the woman’s family and friends at this very difficult time.
“Enquiries into the incident are continuing and we are appealing for witnesses to come forward. Did you see the collision? Or did you see a silver Ford Focus travelling in the area around the time?
“I’d be particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have dash cam footage. If you were in the area, please review any footage and contact me if you have captured anything of note.”
Anyone with information is asked to please email firstname.lastname@example.org
