Police appeal following fatal road traffic collision

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision in Erdington in the early hours of this morning (Sunday).

A red Mercedes B 220 Sport car was in collision with a stationary mini bus taxi parked in Goosemore Lane at the junction with Kirkwood Avenue.

Specialist officers are currently supporting the man’s family.”

Three people, a 49-year-old woman and two 17-year-old males, who were in the Mercedes car have been arrested in connection with the collision and are helping with enquiries.
