OK folks well brother in law was involved in a hit and run last night. And we sadly lost him this morning. I would like everyone to share this message and hopefully find the scum that left him there. So if your partner, son, daughter, friend, friend of friend has a smashed front end of their car please contact your local police so justice can be served.

Please keep this share going thank you.

The incident appears to have occurred at 3:20am on Sunday, 30th March 2014, at the junction of the A5 Watling Street and The Parade, Brownhills.

Police are requesting that anyone with the victim at the time to contact them, as it’s important they get as much information as possible.

If you have any information, or saw anything, please do contact Walsall Police by dialling 101 or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

My condolences to the family and all the people affected by this terrible incident. An awful, awful thing to happen. I’d also that folk respect the privacy of the family where appropriate, including on social media. They must be going through hell, please remember that.

I have asked West Midlands Police for a statement, if one is forthcoming I shall post it up.

I’ll let you have any further info as and when.

    I was driving past the accident when it happened, i saw a lad on the floor and a crowd of people around him the only thing i saw was a taxi driver in a red car going really slow, but maybe he was just looking to see what had happened, my thoughts go out to friends and family, as he was my boyfriends friend x

    03:20hrs that’s morning, I hope all share this and if its your family, share it and inform the police, you would want someone to do it if it was your family hit.
