POLICE are appealing for information after a man died following a crash in Hall Green on New Year’s Eve, December 31.

West Midlands Police say the 37-year-old man was taken to hospital following the incident which took place on the Stratford Road near the junction with Fox Hollies Road, shortly after 11.30pm.

He died on January 4 and his family are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time.

The police say the man is believed to have been hit by a Silver Mercedes E220 and are appealing to anyone with dashcam footage who was in the area at the time and any witnesses to the collision to get in touch.




A 25-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and driving above the legal alcohol limit.

He has been released on police bail.


Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a busy stretch of road with lots of people about, so I am really keen to hear off anyone who witnessed the collision or captured it on dashcam footage.

“Our thoughts remain with the man’s family at this difficult time and we will continue to support them.”

Anyone with information should contact police via email on [email protected], message Live Chat at west-midlands.police.uk between 8am and midnight, or call 101 and quote log number 3968 of December 31.
