Police have arrested a man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following a crash at the weekend in which a woman was killed.

It happened on The Broadway in Walsall at around 7.20pm when a yellow Audi S3 was in collision with a red Vauxhall Corsa. The Corsa driver, a 32-year-old woman, was critically injured and sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

Her family have been notified and have a specially trained family liaison officer supporting them. A police spokesperson said:

"We arrested the 22-year-old Audi driver at the scene and he remains in custody for questioning. He was not hurt. Two passengers in the Audi were taken to hospital for treatment but their injuries are not life threatening. 

"Our collision reconstruction experts have examined the scene in The Broadway by the junction with Magdalene Road and enquiries are underway.

"We’re appealing for any witnesses or anyone who saw the yellow Audi S3 driving along The Broadway before the collision, or of it being driven nearby in the build-up."

Anyone who has CCTV or dash-cam footage that shows the Audi before the collision is asked to get in touch with officers, wither by calling 101 or by messaging on Live Chat via the West Midlands Police website, quoting log 3242 from 21 November.
