two men arrested by police over a collision which left a pedestrian dead have been released from custody.

The men - a 22-year-old from Nottingham and a 23-year-old from Sheffield - were quizzed by detectives over the weekend after a 24-year-old woman was knocked down and killed as she crossed a busy road in Sheffield.

Flowers, candles and cards have been placed at the scene of the tragedy.

One said: “Shaye, we will love and miss you always, from all your family xxx.”

Police said the woman, who has not yet been named, was making her way across the Hanover Way ring road at a traffic light controlled crossing when she was struck by a black Honda Civic.

She was knocked on to the verge at the side of the road.

Police looking into the circumstances surrounding the collision said the two men quizzed and held in custody over the weekend were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The 22-year-old has been bailed pending further inquiries and the 23-year-old has been released without charge.

The two men were in the Honda Civic, travelling from the direction of the Brook Hill roundabout towards the roundabout at the bottom of Ecclesall Road.

The woman had been crossing the dual carriageway from the Broomhall side of the road.

Her death was one of two fatalities on the county’s roads over the weekend.

Steven Brown, 26, of Askern, Doncaster, died in the early hours of Sunday after his car left the A19 and collided with trees near Owston, Doncaster, at around 2.35am.

Mr Brown was travelling in his yellow Fiat Punto towards Doncaster when it left the carriageway to the nearside.
