A spokesperson for West Mercia Police said: "The incident on Church Street in Malvern on August 8 is still under investigation. Nobody has been arrested."

A red Fiat 500 ploughed into six pedestrians on the pavement of Church Street shortly after midday on Tuesday, August 8.

A woman, in her 80s, who was taken to hospital died from her injuries. Two of the victims were admitted to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the car remained at the scene and was helping with enquiries into the cause of the collision.

Sergeant Liam Bennet, who is leading the investigation, said at the time: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family of the lady who has died.

“We’re working hard to understand what happened and how the car came to mount the pavement and strike the pedestrians.  While our investigation continues I would ask people to avoid speculating about what happened.”

Laura Monk who works at Parsons Bakery in Church Street described hearing a thump and saw the aftermath of the crash.

"I thought something had fallen over and I came running out. There was an old lady lying here on the pavement, one of our customers who is 88," she said.

The car had knocked over the boards outside Get Connected (the mobile phone shop) and hit the boards outside the bakery. 

She described how an off-duty nurse from Oxford, who was on holiday in Malvern, helped the casualties and said a colleague held a woman's hand after she had been injured.  

Worcestershire county councillor Beverley Nielsen, an independent, described what happened as 'a terrible tragedy'.

Cllr Nielsen said: "I would like to send my condolences to the family of the lady who very sadly passed away and my best wishes to all those involved and especially the two others who I understand remain in hospital."

The Malvern Langland councillor said she and others had been lobbying for a 20mph speed limit 'at the very least' on town roads including Church Street, Victoria Road, Albert Road North, Abbey Road and Worcester Road.

Anyone who saw the collision or may have dash-cam footage of it is asked to contact Sgt Liam Bennett on liam.bennett@westmercia.police.uk quoting incident number 189i of 8 August.
