Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS -

A PEDES­TRIAN has died af­ter be­ing hit by a van near Coven­try.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened in Fil­lon­g­ley Road, Meri­den, at 1.40pm on Thurs­day and saw two am­bu­lances and the War­wick­shire and Northamp­ton­shire Air Am­bu­lance called to the scene.

A West Mid­lands Am­bu­lance Ser­vice spokesman said: “Crews ar­rived to find a man that had suf­fered mul­ti­ple se­ri­ous in­juries and was re­ceiv­ing CPR by by­standers.

“Medics took over re­sus­ci­ta­tion at­tempts and ad­vanced life sup­port was car­ried out. Un­for­tu­nately, noth­ing could be done to save the man and he was con­firmed dead at the scene.

“A se­cond man, who was also a pedes­trian, was un­in­jured in the in­ci­dent but was treated at the scene for shock.”
