Woman involved in Kimberworth collision dies

A WOMAN has died after she was involved in a collision which left her with life-threatening injuries.

The incident occurred on Tuesday (7) afternoon and the 57-year-old woman was taken to hospital but later died, a police spokesman said today (Thursday).

It was reported that a 24-year-old man was driving a black Renault Clio along Pitt Street, Kimberworth, towards Rotherham town centre at around 4.30pm when the collision happened.

A police spokeswoman added: “It is reported that the Clio was involved in a collision with a woman who had got out of her car, a silver Audi A3, which was parked on the kerb on Pitt Street.”

The spokeswoman added a further collision involving the Clio and a stationary red Skoda Fabia took place shortly after the woman was injured.

The Clio driver was arrested nearby on Meadowbank Road on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He has been released under investigation.

The occupants of the Skoda were not injured.
