Police appeal for witnesses following hit and run collision

Officers were called to the A34 Walsall Road, Great Barr, near to Beeches Road at 6pm on Saturday (23 September) following a collision between a car and a pedestrian.

A 28-year-old woman was crossing the road with her 4-day-old baby in a pram when they were hit by a passing car. Both mother and baby were taken to hospital. The 28 year old remains in hospital in a critical condition. The 4-day-old was kept in hospital as a precaution.

The driver of the car failed to remain at the scene and ran off in the direction of Dyas Avenue. 

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the West Midlands Police Collision Investigation Unit, said: "This investigation is in its early stages and we are trying to establish exactly what happened. I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision and hasn’t yet spoken to police to make contact.

“The vehicle involved was a blue Mazda MPS Aero Sports registration number DV07 MWN. If anyone can provide information about this vehicle and its use I would like to hear from them. 

"I would also appeal directly to the driver to do the right thing; come forward and speak to us now."

Anyone with information is urged to call police on 101 or email and quote log 2124 23/09/17 

Alternatively people can pass information on anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
