Desperate and sad my heart goes out to the family. Let's hope there is a proper investigation into this.

The roads around here are plagued by cars driving too fast and it's truly frightening to walk in many places. Driving safely and to the road conditions is not a sign of weakness it's a sign of strength.

Extremely sad what has happened, my thoughts go out to the lady's family.

But we cant just jump to assumptions that it was a result of fast driving.
Having driven that road today it is absolutely swarming with council men cutting all the grass verges along where it happened.

Im sorry hereford council but your efforts are far too late
Hereford times reported that your decision not to cut the grass could end up costing lives, and it looks as though it may have done just that.

If the cause does end up being a result of the poorly managed verges then surely Hereford Council Should be held responsible for this extremely sad collision.
