Special Constable Resham Nahal, who was a special for more than 15 years, was hit by a passing car while attending the scene of a separate crash on the Wolverhampton Road on November 8.

The 52-year-old, from the Force Support Unit, suffered multiple fractures to his leg in the incident.

Special Constable Nahal died on June 26 and it is not yet known if his death related to his injuries.

A post mortem was held last Monday and officers are awaiting the results.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "A 59-year-old woman appeared at Wolverhampton magistrates court on 20 February and admitted a charge of driving without due care and attention.

"She was given a three points on her driving licence and was ordered to pay £167 in fines and costs.

"A post-mortem was held last Monday and officers are awaiting the results. We are liaising with the CPS to consider any future possible action in light of Resham's death."
