A person has been arrested after a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl were killed when a car hit several pedestrians in Oldbury last night.

The teenagers were pronounced dead at the scene after the collision involving a blue Nissan Skyline on Sunday night.

A man and woman in their 20s are in hospital with life-threatening injuries following the incident on the A457 Birmingham Road and Oldbury Road, near to the junction with Crystal Drive, at 11.30pm.

A 54-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and remains in custody, West Midlands Police said. Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes added:

"This is a tragic incident and our thoughts remain with all the families affected. We have specialist family liaison officers supporting them at this terrible time.

"We know that there were lots of people who had gathered in the area at the time of the collision and would have witnessed what happened. I would urge those people to get in touch if they haven't already done so.

"I would ask people not to share videos or photos on social media. If you have anything that could help with our investigation, then please get in touch.

"This is very distressing for the families affected and it's not appropriate for them to see things that could upset them on social media. I want to thank everyone who has provided a statement so far, and ask anyone else with dashcam footage or any other witnesses to contact us."

Witnesses, or anyone with information or dashcam footage can email West Midlands Police, message them on Live Chat at or call 101, quoting log number 3732 of 20 November.
