A WOMAN was killed while crossing a busy road near Redditch.
Marlane Titcumb was involved in a collision with a black Ford Focus travelling southbound on the A435 Alcester Road near to the Branson’s Cross pub about 3.30pm on Monday (May 21).
The 63-year-old from Tanworth-in-Arden was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for emergency treatment after being anaesthetised by doctors at the scene, but later died.
A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance service said: “When crews arrived they found a woman receiving excellent CPR by police and an off duty nurse. The woman was in cardiac arrest and had multiple serious injuries.
“Crews and the medics worked as a team to resuscitate her at the roadside.”
The driver of the Ford Focus, a woman believed to be in her 30s, was shaken but uninjured. The road was closed from the M42 junction to the area around Branson’s Cross until about 7.30pm.
An investigation has been launched into how the collision happened and witnesses or anyone with any information are urged to contact police on 0300 333 3000.
