Police name man who died after being hit by car on main Cumbrian road

A man has died in hospital after being hit by a car on a busy Cumbrian road.

James Henry Smith, aged 54, of Hyde Street, Workington, passed away in the West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven, this morning following the collision near the Town Hall on Oxford Street, Workington, at 5.45pm yesterday.

Police last night said that pedestrian Mr Smith had sustained serious head injuries.

Mr Smith, known as Jim, was involved in a collision with a grey Honda CR-V car, being driven by a 50-year-old woman from the Workington area.

She was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving without due care and attention. She has since been released on bail.

Specially trained police officers are supporting Mr Smith's family.

The road was closed for about four hours while collision investigators worked at the scene. Traffic diversions were put in place.

Anyone who saw the incident should call PC David Edwards, of Cumbria Roads Policing Unit, on 101.

Will changes to the stop and search code increase your trust in the police?

I already trust our police to act in the best interests of the law-abiding

Don't care. I doubt stop and search is used much in Cumbria anyway

No. Who's to say the new code will be followed faithfully?
