Jamey Coleman hit and run – police appeal for further information

West Midlands Police continue their enquiries into the tragic death of local lad Jamey Coleman, who died following a hit and run accident at the junction of the A5 Watling Street and The Parade in the the early hours of Sunday, March 30th, 2014.


A remarkable number of floral tributes have been placed at the accident site.

It seems that during the course of the investigation, a woman has been interviewed and a vehicle has been recovered.

There has been huge interest and sympathy from the community, and West Midlands Police are appealing directly for anyone who may have any information – no matter how insignificant they may consider it to be – to contact them.

The police issued the following statement:

Officers continue to appeal for information after a man lost his life in a collision on a Brownhills street in March.

Jamey Coleman was struck by a vehicle at around 3.10am on Sunday 30 March on Watling Street following a night out with friends.

The 24-year-old was taken to hospital with serious injuries where, despite the best efforts of medical staff, he later died.

Officers from the Collision Investigation Unit launched an investigation and have interviewed a woman in her 20s in connection with the collision.

Inspector Paul Bennett, from the Collision Investigation Unit, said: ‘Specialist officers continue to support the family at this sad time as we continue to piece together what happened that night.

‘Following our investigations we have recovered a vehicle and interviewed a woman in connection with the collision.

‘What I am appealing for now is for anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward. I understand that it was in the early hours of the morning but the road runs off the very busy A5 and someone may have seen Jamey walking home or any vehicles in the area.

‘If you saw something but thought it was insignificant then please call me or one of my team so we can take some details.’

Anyone with any information is urged to call the force’s Collision Investigation Unit on 101. Alternatively people who do not want to speak direct to the police can call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, on 0800 555 111.

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.

There are also articles online from the Express & Star and Walsall Advertiser.

My sympathies and condolences, and I’m sure I speak for all readers, go out to Jamey’s family and friends. A tragic loss of a bright, well-liked young man.

Please help the enquiry is you can.
