More than 30 firefighters were called to the scene on Ladywood Road in Four Oakes last night.
A 66-year-old pedestrian died after a collision with a car on Brettell Lane in Stourbridge on Sunday night.
He was treated by paramedics, however, he died a short time later.
Officers were called to High Street Amblecote at the junction of Brettell Lane at around 6.50pm following reports that a car had hit a man and had driven away from the scene.
A 25-year-old man, who was the driver of a red Vauxhall Corsa that collided with the man, was arrested on suspicion of death by dangerous driving. He was later released on police bail pending further enquiries.
And now officers want to speak to another driver who may be able to help them with their enquiries.
The road was very busy last night and we are appealing to the driver of a black 4x4 who was in the area at the time of the collision to come forward.
The driver would have been turning into Brettell Lane from High Street, Amblecote at around the time of the collision. The 4 x 4 driver did stop initially at the scene but left a short time later. We are now appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.
Our thoughts remain with the family of the man who lost his life and specialist officers continue to liaise with them.
