The Sunday Post (Inverness) - - News -

The fam­ily of a grand­mother mowed down by a hit-an­drun driver say they have been left heart­bro­ken by her death.

Kr­ishna Devi Droch, 62, died af­ter be­ing struck as she walked across a street in Birm­ing­ham on Thurs­day.

Po­lice re­vealed yes­ter­day that a fourth per­son, a 47-year-old man, had been ar­rested over her killing.

In a state­ment re­leased by West Mid­lands Po­lice, Mrs Droch’s fam­ily said: “Our fam­ily has been left heart­bro­ken. Kr­ishna Devi Droch was not only a mother but a daugh­ter, sis­ter, grand­mother and aunt.

“This is not only a loss to the fam­ily, but a loss to the com­mu­nity.

“Through her kind­ness and sup­port she was the foun­da­tion of our fam­ily.

“Although noth­ing can ever re­place what we have lost, her love and care will stay with us for­ever.”

Po­lice be­lieve Mrs Droch was struck as a Vaux­hall Zafira was be­ing fol­lowed by a Corsa and a Mon­deo.

The Zafira is thought to have gone the wrong side of a “keep left” bol­lard and hit her.

It was later found burnt out in a nearby close.

The two other cars were re­cov­ered.

The 47-year-old man is be­ing ques­tioned on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing death by dan­ger­ous driv­ing, af­ter he handed him­self in.
