Police appeal for witnesses after fatal Quarry Bank collision

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on a busy Dudley road yesterday afternoon.

The victim was crossing Thorns Road in Quarry Bank at around 4:15pm when he was struck by a black Mercedes estate car.

The 50-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest and sadly was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 44-year-old man who was driving the car stopped at the scene and is helping police with their enquiries. PC Chris Ridge from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit said:

“This is a real tragedy: a man simply crossing a road near his home has been hit by a vehicle and lost his life. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

The scene on Thorns Road yesterday afternoon.

“We need to get to the bottom of what happened and what led up to the collision. If anyone saw what happened or saw a black Mercedes driving along Thorns Road beforehand then I would ask them to get in touch.

“Similarly, if anyone was driving nearby and has dash-cam I would ask them to check their footage to see if they've caught the Mercedes on camera.”

Anyone with information is asked to message officers via Live Chat through the West Midlands Police website, or call 101 quoting log 2586 from 28 August.
