This is an awful incident, made even worse by the season. I’d like to extend my sympathies to everyone involved, including the driver, the emergency services attending and witnesses.
West Midlands Police are requesting that any witnesses that they haven’t already spoken to contact them on 101. Ask for the Collision Investigation Unit.
Please respect that the deceased has not been named, and speculation, however well intended, is not helpful. As ever, I request readers continue to react sensitively on social media. There could well be family out there still to be informed, after all.
My condolences to all.
