POLICE were called  after a van overturned in a Solihull crash.

West Midlands police discovered the vehicle lying on its side in a central reservation.

A man was transferred to a mental health facility and a second remained in custody.

The collision happened at around 8.20pm on Tuesday, September 13 and there were no other vehicles involved.




The van tipped over after smashing into railings near traffic lights on the Stratford Road in Shirley.

Checks showed the van had been reported stolen from Solihull on Saturday night and two men, aged 43 and 54, were arrested on suspicion of theft of a vehicle.


They were taken to hospital for checks and the 54-year-old was later transferred to the care of a mental health facility.

During ongoing investigations, the 43-year-old was found to be wanted for failing to answer bail on a number of other matters.

Peter Pegg has been charged with possession of a knife, criminal damage, assault and threatening behaviour and was last night remanded in police custody to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court yesterday.
