Retired Bradford College lecturer, 86, died after being struck by car

A GREAT-GRANDFATHER died after he was struck by a car on his way to deliver a Christmas present, an inquest heard.
Kenneth Ward, 86, a retired Bradford College lecturer, was crossing Barkerend Road, Bradford, when he was involved in a collision with a black Toyota Avensis, after he had just stepped off a bus.
The Toyota Avensis, driven by Mohammed Arif, was about to turn right at the junction of Barkerend Road and Shipley Airedale Road.
Mr Ward, of Park Cliffe Road, Undercliffe, was struck by the bonnet and windscreen of Mr Arif’s car and fell onto the road.
This collision resulted in a number of injuries to one of Mr Ward’s lungs, spinal cord and multiple rib fractures.
He was taken to Leeds General Infirmary where he died on New Year’s Day this year from pneumonia.
The incident took place outside Appleton House Training Centre, at around 2.15pm on December 17 last year.
The inquest in Bradford yesterday heard Mr Ward was on his way to an address on Barkerend Road to deliver a Christmas present to a relative.
Mr Arif and his wife, who was a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the incident, stopped to try to help Mr Ward.
