Appeal following fatal Solihull collision

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man has died following a three-car collision in Castle Bromwich this morning (11 January).

The 37-year-old suffered a serious head injury after his Peugeot 207 was struck on Collector Road, near the junction of Lanchester Way, at around 8.25am.

He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Two men, aged 42 and 25, have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and will be questioned in due course.

Collector Road is currently closed into Birmingham while investigations take place and this is likely to remain the case until later this afternoon.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from force’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:

“A man has tragically lost his life and we will be doing everything we can to support his family at such a devastating time.

“We need to establish what led to this collision and we are urging anybody who was in the area at the time to come forward. 

“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw an orange Fiesta ST and black Golf GT TDI before the collision or has dash cam footage which could assist our enquiries.”

Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit via email at FL_COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk, call 101 or Live Chat via WMP Online. Please quote log 411 of 11/1/19.
