A 38-year-old man has died after being hit by a car in Birmingham.

It is believed a pedestrian was crossing the road on Bristol Street at the junction of Belgrave Middleway, when he was struck by a car which failed to stop.

Officers say it happened just after 1.30am this morning (Saturday 1 December).

A 21-year-old man later handed himself into police where he was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

Sergeant Alan Hands from the Collision Investigation Unit said:

We have spoken to a number of witnesses already but I am still appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision who hasn’t yet spoken to us to get in touch.

A man has lost his life and our thoughts are with his family who are being supported by one of our specialist officers.
