A MAN who died after being hit by a car last week has been named by police.

Mark Paul Walker, who was 37 and from the Bradford area, was in collision with a vehicle as he crossed the Shipley Airedale Road, close to the junction with Barkerend Road at around 11.50pm on Tuesday, November 28.

A 25-year-old man from Bradford was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and later released under investigation.

A black BMW 330D was also recovered for further inquiries.

Sergeant Mat Tunney, of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “We continue to believe that Mark was with another person in the moments before the collision and we are urging that person to come forward and speak with us, so we can establish Mark’s final movements before he died.

"Similarly, if anyone knows who this person might have been I would urge them to contact us.

“We also continue to appeal for information about a dark coloured vehicle which was travelling along Shipley Airedale Road towards Barkerend Road around the time of the collision. This vehicle is believed to have been in close proximity to the BMW.

“We would also urge anyone who might have dash cam footage which shows the BMW either before or just after the collision, which occurred around 11.50pm that evening, to contact us.”

Anyone else who may have information about the collision or the circumstances immediately prior to it is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101, quoting log 2150 of November 28.
