A PENSIONER has died after being hit by a motorbike in Oldbury on Wednesday night (April 10).

The 70-year-old woman died at the scene of the incident, which happened just after 8.30pm on the A4123 Wolverhampton Road near to Birchley Island.

Police responding to the incident found the woman with serious injuries under a bridge.

It is believed the woman was crossing the road with two family members when she was struck by a motorcycle.

Two paramedic officers and a trauma doctor treated the woman but could not save her.

The pensioner was pronounced dead at the scene just after 9pm and her family are now being supported by specialist officers.

Inspector Stephen Radford, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "I am appealing for any witnesses of this collision to come forward, particularly if anyone has any dashcam footage.

"We have spoken with two motorcyclists at the scene and they are both helping police with enquiries."

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman added: “The woman was in a critical condition when ambulance staff arrived.

"The team of medics worked quickly to administer advanced life support to her but sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead on scene a short time later.

“The motorcyclist, a man, sustained minor injuries and didn’t require hospital treatment.”
