A man who was hit by a taxi in the city centre has died in hospital.
A 31-year-old man from Norwich was hit by a black cab while walking alongside Riverside Road, near the junction of Ferry Road, at about 1.10am on Sunday June 24, 2012.
The pedestrian, who was walking towards the train station from the direction of Ketts Hill when the incident happened, was initially taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with serious head injuries and later transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge where he died on Monday, July 9.
Police carried out inquiries at the scene of the collision and spoken with the driver of the cab who stopped at the scene. Officers investigating the incident are currently looking to see if there is any CCTV footage which may assist the investigation.
Officers are still seeking a man who was seen near the scene of the collision, and the driver of a Nissan Micra which stopped at the scene of the collision. The Micra was travelling towards the railway station from the Ketts Hill direction.
PC Chris Tremlin of Norfolk police said: “I am particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen a male wearing dark clothing and a baseball cap on Riverside Road, or the taxi prior to the collision.
“There was also a vehicle which stopped at the scene behind the taxi, I would be keen to speak to the driver of this vehicle.”
The man has not been identified and a date for an inquest will be announced in the coming days.
Anyone with information about this incident should call PC Ian Thexton at Norfolk’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101.
