PC Alex Rippin, from the West Midlands Police collision investigation unit, is appealing for witnesses following a non-stop collision in Great Barr in which an elderly woman died.

Emergency services were dispatched to Birmingham Road – opposite the junction of Peak House Road – just before 12PM on Friday 21st October, to reports of a collision involving a car and a pedestrian.

On arrival, crews found Mary Elizabeth Humpherson, aged 88, and from Great Barr lying in the road. She was taken to hospital with serious injuries but sadly died later that day.

Specialist officers are supporting her family who paid the following tribute:

“It is difficult to express our loss and how this has affected us all. Betty was a loving mother, grandmother and friend to many in Great Barr. A kind hearted, sincere and caring lady who always put others first. We are devastated by this incident and would request that the family’s privacy is respected at this difficult time “.

PC Rippin, said: “The driver abandoned the car at the scene and ran off- enquiries are on-going to trace him, but I would like him to do the right thing and contact investigating officers. I would also like to hear from anyone who has information to contact us.”
