Man suffers life-threatening injuries after Oldbury collision

Police are appealing for information after a man suffered life-threatening injuries after multiple vehicles were involved in a collision in Oldbury.

Officers were called to Wolverhampton Road, between Pound Road and Brandhall Road, at around 6:40pm on Monday to a collision involving three vehicles. 

A driver, who is understood to have been outside his vehicle at the time, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. Officers arrested another driver on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. They have since been released with no further action. Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes from the Serious Investigation Collision Unit said:

"We believe at this time that the first two vehicles were stationary following an earlier collision and have then been struck by a third, however we need to carefully piece together all of the evidence.  

“I would therefore appeal to anyone who was on the Wolverhampton Road at that time and recalls seeing a collision or was travelling on the road with dash cam to contact us.

"As always I would ask people to consider those involved and their families and do not speculate on what has happened.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision or anyone with dash cam footage is urged to get in contact with police via Live Chat at or by calling 101 quoting 4147 of 04/12/23.
