Officers are re-appealing for witnesses following the death of man in the Ravenfield area of Rotherham.

On Thursday 14 March, emergency services were called to Common Lane at 8.15pm following a collision between a car and a pedestrian. 

It is reported that a black Dacia Duster was in collision with a pedestrian who is believed to have been in the road near to the junction with Bramley Lane. 

The pedestrian, a 42-year-old man, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

Officers would like to speak to anyone who saw the pedestrian’s movements prior to the collision. He was described as wearing dark clothing and carrying a white carrier bag at the time.
