Police are appealing for witnesses

A man has died almost two weeks after he was hit by a car in Corby earlier this month.

In an appeal launched today (December 30) police released details of the crash, which took place at about 4.50pm on December 15.

A maroon Citroen C1 was travelling along Oldland Road in the direction of Butland Road when it was involved in a crash with a pedestrian just after the junction of Waver Close.

The pedestrian, a 79-year-old man, later died from his injuries at Kettering General Hospital on Saturday, December 28.

A police spokesman said: "Anyone with information or who witnessed this incident is asked to call the Drivewatch Hotline on 0800 174615 or Northamptonshire Police on 101."

EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version of this story said that the crash took place at 6.50pm and that the pedestrian died at the scene. This was based on information provided by police, which was incorrect.
