It happened just after 12.05pm on Saturday 16 May on Hemel Hempstead Road, near to the junction with Wood End Farm.

A grey Ford Kuga was in collision with a pedestrian, a man in his 20s. The pedestrian suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital by ambulance. He remains in a critical but stable condition.

The driver of the Ford, a woman in her 60s, was uninjured and remained at the scene. An air ambulance attended the incident and paramedics gave the pedestrian treatment at the scene, before he was taken to hospital via road. His next of kin have been made aware and are being supported by officers.
