It involved a male pedestrian and a Range Rover vehicle.

Leaders at Middlesbrough Council have been told emergency financial help is now needed to avoid effective bankruptcy.
In a stark warning to the Executive, a report said a request for exceptional financial support must be made to the Government this month.
If they choose not to approve the move at a meeting next week, or a financial life raft is insufficient, a section 114 notice will be issued.
All councils are legally required to ensure the budget is balanced by March, and expenditure is not more than income.
Despite proposed cost-cutting measures, Middlesbrough Council still faces a £6.3m funding deficit.
A raft of asset sales and a transformation programme of services have already been signed off while further savings proposals totalling £14m are out for public consultation.
They include job cuts, reduced waste collection and a council tax increase of 4.99 per cent.
