Braintree: Woman died after road collision, inquest told
4:00pm Wednesday 3rd October 2012 in News
A much-loved daughter tragically died as a result of a road traffic collision, an inquest has heard.
Nimmi Shah, 38, collided with a car at the bottom of the sliproad between London Road and the A120 eastbound carriageway in Braintree, on February 15, at 7.35pm.
The Braintree Jobcentre Plus worker, of Beadon Drive, Braintree, died of multiple injuries at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, in the early hours of the following day.
An inquest into her death last Wednesday heard Miss Shah was thought to have been crossing the road when she collided with a Renault Clio.
Crash investigator PC Steve Perrett told the inquest that while the path on the bottom of the sliproad had been engineered to allow people to cross the road, at night it was “virtually impossible” to see them, despite streetlights.
Essex coroner Caroline Beasley-Murray said: “Nimmi Shah died as a result of a road traffic collision.
“She clearly was a much-loved young lady with a bright future ahead of her.”
