TRIBUTES have been paid to a pedestrian who died following a crash in Worcester in the early hours of this morning, named locally as Chris Willmott.

The 48-year-old was hit by a car close to Ford Bristol Street Motors in Cotswold Way, Worcester, just after 1.10am today.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Today tributes have been paid to him online.

Commenting on a Worcester News post on Facebook, Debi Williams wrote: "Sad news to wake up to. R.i.p chris. Thoughts are with the family xx"

Dawn Elizabeth Lilburn posted: "Chris it was a pleasure to have been your friend we grew up together as kid's skiving at my house when you didn't want to go to school so sad to have to say goodbye rip Chris xx"

The car travelling along Cotswold Way collided with Mr Willmott, before crossing into Blackpole Road and impacting a lamppost, causing damage to a vehicle in the dealership.

The driver of the car, a 34-year-old man, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and is currently in custody.

Mr Willmott was with a group of people at the time of the accident, with at least one person in that group believed to be a child.

There was also one passenger in the car.

After the collision the car also crashed into a lamp post in front of the car dealership, knocking it onto a Ford Focus parked in the forecourt, smashing its windscreen and bonnet.

Adam Sandford, manager at Bristol Street Motors, said: "There was damage to one car. It was a bit of a shock, we didn't expect to get that.

"I had a phone call at 2.30am this morning to tell me what had happened.

"Someone has died, it's shocking really. It's unlucky really at that time in the morning, the car may have been travelling fast as there are skid marks in the road."

An ambulance and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed the man died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics.

He said: “Crews arrived to find a man and a car that had been in a serious collision.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and sadly he was confirmed dead at the scene.”

Police are now appealing for witnesses. Anyone with information is urged to contact PC 3036 Ashley or Sgt 1914 Allen at Bromsgrove Operational Policing Unit on 101 quoting incident number 39 of 1st August.

The road was closed but reopened at 8am this morning.

How awful, that's so sad. Not sure where this happened on that road but the 50 mile stretch is too fast for the area. My thoughts go out to his family.

Too much sad news lately. Thinking of his family at this sad time.

I always thought this stretch was a 40mph limit. That might explain why I regularly get cars driving up my backside.
Yesterday morning I witnessed a Range Rover beeping and tailgating a learner driver from the lights on the Blackpole Road all the way to the Tesco Express roundabout.

This road is mainly a 30 zone but does change into a 40 further up the road. I do believe this incident happened in the 30 zone. I think its unfair to automatically bring speed into the equation when no one really knows the circumstances of what happened.

The bit from the Cranham drive school up to the traffic lights and beyond is 30mph but I think a lot still go at 40mph - maybe the limit should be started further back. It's 50 from the motorway up to 40mph by the Barn Owl pub then remians at 40 to Cranham. At that time of night drivers may well stay at 40mph when they should travel at 30mph. I'm not saying that has happened in this case though. Tragic news for the family.

Firstly, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the man who has been killed. Their lives have been ripped apart in an instant and their grief is unimaginable. Our thoughts must be with them before any consideration as to why this tragedy has occurred. But it is natural that people will want to speculate as to why, and i is natural that speed has been mentioned.

As a society, we still seem to take a blasé attitude towards speeding. Those done for it are treated as being "unlucky". We have a collective assumption that we are all very safe drivers and that speed limits can be ignored so long as we don't get caught. Perhaps statistics have something to do with why people have referred to speed.

According to the Department for Transport,
If someone is hit by a car at 40 mph they are 90% likely to be killed.
If someone is hit by a car at 30 mph they are 50% likely to be killed.
If someone is hit by a car at 20 mph they are 10% likely to be killed

The bottom line is, there is a direct correlation between speed and the severity of the outcome of any accident. We can ignore speed limits but we cannot ignore the laws of physics. I strongly urge people to search for the following video on You Tube. Search for:

"Please slow down RTA commercial".

It is only a minute long but is a real eye opener. The principle that it graphically sets out with amazing CGI and trick photography could just as easily apply to a pedestrian being struck as opposed to the lorry that is used in the film to show the alternative outcome based on just a five mile per hour difference in speed between two "identical" cars on the same stretch of road. The contrast is shocking.

No I thought the accident might have happened on the stretch just off the motorway before the Barn Owl - I would never drive at 50 in a 40 or 30 zone. I'm one of those drivers who drive at 30 in a 30 zone and get overtaken!

Whilst I agree with your sentiment you regularly post on WN sometimes being trivial eg over the car accident in St John where 2 people were taken to hospital. Therefore I find it odd that you elect yourself unofficial editor of this site and use emotional blackmail to try to stop the comments. It's not only a tribute site although I do think it's a good place for people to leave their memories and tributes. It's a free press and people are entitled to discuss/debate and as long as no one is being disrespectful about the victim of this tragic, awful accident. Any discussion about speed is a good thing as speed awareness helps to save lives whether it was relevant in this case or not. If people feel a comment is inappropriate then click on the report button and let the editor decide. I suspect I will get down thumbed for my post but that is people's right.
