“I would ask anyone who may have witnessed the crash, or who may have dash-cam footage, and has not yet spoken to or provided this information to officers, to contact us as soon as possible.

“The road re-opened around 3pm. I want to thank members of the public for their patience while we investigated this serious collision.

One person said: "It was a woman that was knocked down. It is really sad."

A second person said: "That road is so dangerous. People are always darting across it after being at the retail park but the cars go so fast."

Third person said: "The road is a nightmare to cross because the lights take ages to change so people don't always use them.

“I don't know if that is what happened today but they need to make it safer."

Fourth person said: "Really sad stuff to hear so someone has been hurt. Police stayed on the road for a while."
