Police investigating a fatal collision on New Year’s Eve are appealing for a key witness to come forward. The crash happened just before 8pm on Saturday 31 December at the junction of Hagley Road West and Wolverhampton Road, Sandwell.

Officers have already spoken to a number of witnesses, but they say they need to speak to one key witness, who could have significant information.

This witness was a woman driving a car that was waiting to turn right from Hagley Road West into Wolverhampton Road South. I know she did stop and speak to other witnesses at the time, however she was unable to stay.

This woman potentially has information that is significant to our investigation. I would like to emphasise that she has nothing to do with the collision and I would appeal to her to contact either myself or a member of my team.
