We are now in a position to name the pedestrian who died following a road traffic collision at Mile Oak on Thursday, January 28.

Rosemary Robinson, aged 61, was in collision with a VW Golf on the A453 Sutton Road near to its junction with George Avenue shortly after 6pm.

Mrs Robinson, of Boldmere Road, Sutton Coldfield, sustained serious multiple injuries and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham where sadly she died on Friday, January 29.

Her family has issued the following tribute:

“Rose was loved by all who knew her. A employee of Iceland, customers, colleagues, as well as the whole community have been left in shock by this tragedy. Rose was a devoted mother, loving sister and auntie and truly remarkable friend to all who knew her. She was an avid Cliff Richard fan and many friends described her as ‘Mommy Rose’ due to her loving, motherly nature. Rose’s two daughters as well as her family are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident on that day to come forward and are pleading for any information that could help them piece together the events of that fateful evening.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident 657 of January 28.
