Police appeal for witnesses after man loses life in Bloxwich collision
Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a man lost his life in a Bloxwich collision on Sunday (9 April).
Officers were called to the junction of Fryers Road and Leamore Lane just after 11pm following reports of a car in collision with a van.
A 21-year-old man was treated by the ambulance service at the scene but despite their best efforts there was nothing that could be done to save him and he died at the scene. A 20-year-old passenger was also taken to hospital for serious injuries where he remains in a critical condition.
The 28-year-old driver of the car was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and is currently helping police with their enquiries.
Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the force’s collision investigation unit, said: “We continue to investigate the circumstances that led to this man’s tragic death and we are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and who has not already spoken to us to come forward.
“The family of the man have been informed of his death and specialist officers continue to liaise with them.”
