Last night (Friday, 17th June 2011) there was a bad accident at the junction of the B5011 Chase Road and the A5 watling Street in Newtown, Brownhills. The accident was between a heavy goods vehicle and a Kia Ri0, two occupants of which, a man and women aged 29 and 35, were sadly killed. The driver of the lorry has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
My sympathies and condolences go out to the families involved.
