Officers investigating Great Barr hit and run release CCTV

Officers investigating a hit and run collision on the A34 Walsall Road in Great Barr have released CCTV footage in relation to the incident. 

Police were called to the A34 Walsall Road, near to Beeches Road at 6pm on Saturday 23 September following a collision between a car and a pedestrian.

A 28-year-old woman was crossing the road with her four-day-old baby in a pram when they were hit by a passing car. Both mother and baby were taken to hospital. The 28-year-old remains in hospital in a critical condition. The baby was kept in hospital as a precaution.

The driver of the car failed to remain at the scene and ran off in the direction of Dyas Avenue. 

Officers are now trying to trace the man they believe to be involved in the incident and have released CCTV footage from a house on the road.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the West Midlands Police Collision Investigation Unit, said: "This investigation is in its early stages and we are trying to establish exactly what happened. I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision and hasn’t yet spoken to police to make contact.

“The vehicle involved was a blue Mazda MPS Aero Sports registration number DV07 MWN. If anyone can provide information about this vehicle and its use I would like to hear from them. 

"I would also appeal directly to the driver to do the right thing; come forward and speak to us now."

Anyone who recognises the man or with information is urged to call police on 101 or email FL_COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk and quote log 2124 23/09/17.

Alternatively people can pass information on anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
