The woman’s body was discovered around 20 minutes later in Marlborough Road. Paramedics declared her dead at the scene.
Offices seized a car near to where the woman’s body was discovered.
A short time later, a 33-year-old man from Nuneaton presented himself at Nuneaton Police Station where he was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
A 63-year-old man from Nuneaton was also arrested, at his home address, on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
Sergeant Dan James from Warwickshire Police Roads Policing Unit said: “This was a terrible incident and our immediate thoughts are with the families of the two people involved.
“It’s too early to speculate on exactly what happened but at this time we are treating the death of the woman and the injury to the man as linked, and we believe both have been involved in a collision with a vehicle. We are working to piece together exactly what happened.
“It is vital that anyone in the areas around the time the man and woman were discovered gets in contact with police, especially if they have any dash cam or CCTV footage.”
