Langley: Pedestrian Dies After Crash

29 January 2014, 17:25

A man has died almost a week after being hit by a car in Langley.

It happened on High Street, at the junction with Wylands Road, last Wednesday (22/1) at around 5.27pm. Police, fire crews and ambulances were called following reports that a grey VW Passat had been in collision with a pedestrian.

The male pedestrian, who has not yet been formally identified, received serious injuries and was taken to Wexham Park Hospital, where he died yesterday (28/1).

Senior Investigating Officer Richard Thorpe, who is leading the investigation, said: "Due to the time of day, the area was quite busy and we are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen either the car or pedestrian, in the moments before the collision. Anyone with any information regarding this incident should contact police via the 101 number or Crimestoppers."

If you have any information please contact Richard Thorpe via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.

Officers from the Road Death Investigation Unit will be speaking to drivers and pedestrians at the scene tonight (Wednesday) in an effort to identify any witnesses. The coroner for East Berkshire has been informed and an inquest will been opened in due course.
