Police would like to speak to a motorist who may have had a ‘near-miss’ with pedestrian Diana Edwards before she was involved in a collision with a single-decker coach.
As part of our continuing investigation, we’ve received information that suggests a car narrowly missed colliding with the 86-year-old on Leighton Buzzard Road, Hemel Hempstead, just before 1.15pm on Friday, June 28.
She was walking home from her daily shopping trip when she was involved in a collision with a single-decker coach. She was seriously injured and sadly died on Wednesday, July 10.
PC Carl Callan, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We would like to speak to the driver of a car believed to have had a near-miss with Diana just moments before the collision.
“We have spoken to a number of witnesses but would appreciate other people coming forward, especially if they drove past just before the incident.
“In addition if anyone has dash cam footage of what happened, please get in touch.”
Anyone with information should contact investigating officer PC Callan via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting Op Newlands – ISR 369 of 28 June.
