The child killed in a tragic collision in Aston was a two year-old boy, Muhhamad Zakariyya, police have revealed.

He was struck by a blue Nissan Almera in Nelson Road, Aston, at about 6.50pm on Tuesday.

Medics battled to save his life at the roadside after the toddler suffered a cardiac arrest, but he later died in hospital.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said: “Advanced life support was carried out by medics at the scene, and resuscitation attempts continued en route to hospital, who had been pre-alerted and were awaiting the child’s arrival.

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of medics at the scene and hospital, nothing could be done to save the child and he was sadly confirmed dead a short time after arriving at hospital.”

Police appealed for witnesses to the collision, which happened in the shadow of Villa Park less than an hour before the Villa v Notts County League Cup tie.
