West Midlands Police confirm a hit and run took place at 12:50am this morning – they say in Hednesford Road. Two men injured, one seriously so, after a collision involving a white van which failed to stop.
The two men were walking along the pavement when the van collided with them and failed to stop – it was later recovered in Kingstanding.
One man aged 42 is detained with serious injuries, the other man was treated for minor injuries – any witnesses please call Police on 101.
Thanks to West Midlands Police media officer Jo Hunt for her help.
More when I have it.
Seeing social media reports about a car accident in which a couple of lads may have been hurt after midnight last night (9-10th August 2014) in the Wilkin Road area of Brownhills West.
I have very scant details, and everything is unverified at the moment. I have asked the police to make a statement. It seems the lads have been taken to hospital.
Reports are that there is an incident tent on the corner of Shannon Drive and Wilkin Road and this may have been a hit and run.
All this is totally unconfirmed at the moment, so take care with the rumour, folks- this could be completely wrong.
As soon as I get anything else I will post it up.
Obviously I extend my sympathies to anyone injured.
If you have any details, please comment here or mail me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
