Driver arrested over fatal crash in Walsall

We’ve arrested a man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving following a crash last night in which a woman was killed.

It happened in The Broadway, Walsall at around 7.20pm when a yellow Audi S3 was in collision with a red Vauxhall Corsa.

The Corsa driver, a 32-year-old woman, was critically injured and sadly pronounced dead at the scene. 

Her family have been notified and we have a specially trained family liaison officer supporting them at this tragic time.

We arrested the 22-year-old Audi driver at the scene and he remains in custody for questioning.

He was not hurt. Two passengers in the Audi were taken to hospital for treatment but their injuries are not life threatening. 

Our collision reconstruction experts have examined the scene in The Broadway by the junction with Magdalene Road and enquiries are underway.

We’re appealing for any witnesses or anyone who saw the yellow Audi S3 driving along The Broadway before the collision, or of it being driven nearby in the build-up.

And if anyone has CCTV or dash-cam footage that shows the Audi before the collision then we really need them to get in touch.

Please call us on 101 or message on Live Chat via our website and quote log 3242 from 21 Nov. Thanks.
