Incident 84 of 27 September 2018

Police have named the female pedestrian who died following a road traffic collision on Thursday 27 September 2018 in Camberwell Terrace, Leamington Spa as 69 year old Marlene Sandra Head from Leamington Spa.

The family have provided the following tribute:-

Over some 40 years' teaching in Warwickshire, from the early 1970s at Kineton High School then both St Joseph 's Convent and Crackley Hall school in Kenilworth , Marlene touched the lives of innumerable children and families. 

Everybody remembers Mrs Head with admiration, respect and affection. 

In her all too brief retirement, Marlene pursued a variety of interests with U3A and Village Voices choir. 

She leaves behind her husband Tom, daughter Sarah, son Murray and grandson Wilfred.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision that is believed to have occurred when a silver Mercedes C200 car turned from Radford Road onto Camberwell Terrace as Mrs Head was crossing the road. 

Mrs Head was taken by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where despite treatment in the Intensive Care Unit, she sadly died 12 hours later at 21.30hours.

This collision took place at a very busy time and place and officers are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to please contact PC 531 Mark Russell on 101 quoting incident 84 of 27 September 2018.
