Appeal for Audi driver to come forward after woman dies in crash

Officers are re-appealing for information after a woman died in an Erdington crash earlier this year.

The 84-year-old was a passenger in a white Hyundai i10 when it was involved in a collision near to the junction of Goosemoor Lane and Court Lane.

The Hyundai was turning right from Court Lane into Goosemoor Lane when it was struck by a white Seat Leon, at around 3pm on Sunday 15 May, resulting in both cars hitting a lamppost.

At the time of the collision the white Seat Leon was travelling in convoy with the white Audi A5 along Court Lane in the same direction.

The 30-year-old driver of the Seat Leon has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving to the driver of the Hyundai, he remains on police bail to allow further enquiries.

It is believed that the driver of a white Audi A5 may hold vital information that could help officers piece together the circumstances that led to the collision.

Sergeant Alan Wood, from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit, said: “We do not underestimate the impact this has had on the family of the woman who tragically died as a result of this collision and our thoughts firmly remain with them as they continue to come to terms with the loss of their loved one.

“We are working hard to establish the circumstances that led to the collision and following a trawl of CCTV we really need to speak to the driver of a the White Audi A5. We strongly believe they hold vital information that will help our investigation, so if you were driving the white Audi A5 on Sunday 15 May at around 3pm, or know who was driving, then please get in touch with us on 101.”
