Woman dies after being found lying in the road outside hospital

A woman has died after she was found 'lying in the road' outside Russells Hall Hospital early this morning.

An ambulance crew discovered the pedestrian in High Street, Pensnett at around 12.30am this morning. Despite their best efforts, and those of hospital medics, nothing could be done to save her. A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service added:

"A passing ambulance came across a woman, lying in the road with serious injuries, outside Russells Hall Hospital at 12.38am this morning. A second ambulance, paramedic officer and MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

"The woman was given advanced life support on scene which continued during the transfer into the nearby A&E department. Sadly, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead a short time later."

The 57-year-old driver of the Range Rover that hit the woman stopped at the scene and is assisting police with their enquiries. A spokesperson for the force said:

"We are asking anyone that may have seen what happened to get in touch with us. The woman was being treated at Russells Hall hospital for an injury yesterday.

"She left in the early hours of this morning and then got hit by a car - we need to work out how she got into the road."

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, quoting log 72 of 2 April.

Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111.
