Woman, 62, killed in hit and run in Birmingham

A 62-year-old woman has died in a hit and run in Birmingham.

It happened at around 11:10 this morning on Rookery Road in Handsworth near the junction with Soho Road.

This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family of the lady who has died.

We urgently need to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened.

I’d urge to the driver to do the right thing and make himself known to police as soon possible.
