POLICE have renewed their appeal for witnesses to a crash after a man died from his injuries.

Peter Armitage, 75, was loading items into the boot of his car on Melville Street, Wombwell, at 10.30am on June 29 when an 83-year-old woman, who was attempting to park her car behind him, collided with him.

Peter was taken to hospital where he remained until he died on August 18.

The woman was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra and was attempting to park behind a Hyundai i10 on Melville Street, close to the junction with High Street.

The Astra then collided with a wall and the front door of a house on the street.
