UPDATE: MAN DIES FOLLOWING COLLISION

UPDATE SHARED ON BEHALF OF SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE:

A man has died following a serious collision in Sheffield on Sunday 22 August.

At around 1.36am, a pedestrian was involved in a collision with a vehicle on Regent Street in the city centre.

The vehicle did not stop at the scene and the pedestrian, a man in his 50s, was found a short time later by members of the public and taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Despite the best efforts of medical staff, the man sadly died on Tuesday (21 September) as a result of his injuries.

Although formal identification has not yet taken place at this stage, the man's family will be supported by specially trained officers.

A 24-year-old man from Sheffield was arrested in connection to the incident. He has since been released under investigation.

As the collision took place in a busy part of the city centre, officers believe there will be people who saw what happened, but have not yet come forward.

Officers are urging anyone who witnessed the collision comes forward to determine exactly what has happened.
