Woman dies after being hit by car on Reading pavement

A woman has died three days after a car mounted a pavement and hit her.

The pedestrian, aged 36, was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital with serious injuries following the crash in Reading, shortly after 21:00 GMT on Saturday.

Another pedestrian, a man in his 30s, is in a stable condition at the Royal Berkshire Hospital with serious leg and head injuries.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and have been bailed.

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

A silver Vauxhall Astra mounted the pavement in Caversham Road, close to the junction with Swansea Road, and hit the two pedestrians and a wall.

Sgt Ashley Hannibal said: "I would like to re-appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision who has not already spoken to the police to do so.

"I would also like to speak to anyone who saw the Vauxhall Astra travelling prior to the collision and anyone who saw a red Seat Leon travelling in the vicinity of the Astra at around the time of the collision."

The men who were arrested were aged 23 and 26 and from Reading. They have been bailed until 30 March.

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote URN 1261.
