A MIDDLE-aged man who was involved in a road crash in Chelmsley Wood has died from his injuries.

A MIDDLE-aged man who was involved in a road crash in Chelmsley Wood has died from his injuries.

The collision, involving a car and the 52-year-old, who was on foot, happened on July 12, at just after 11.30am.

The white Rover 400 collided with the pedestrian as he was crossing the road, near the junction of Cooks Lane and Waterloo Avenue.

Ambulance crews took the man, who lived locally, to Heartlands Hospital, where he was treated for a head injury.

He died there last Wednesday (July 21).

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said that the man’s name was not being released at this stage, but appealed for any witnesses to come forward with any information.

Family liaison officers are also working with the man’s relatives.

The car driver, a 35-year-old woman, from Chelmsley Wood, suffered shock, but escaped the crash uninjured.

It’s the second fatal accident to have happened in north Solihull since the beginning of the month.

Two days before the Cooks Lane crash, a woman had been killed in a two-car collision close to Birmingham Business Park. The 28-year-old had been a passenger in a BMW, which had collided with a lorry at the junction of Chester Road and Coleshill Heath Road.

Anyone who saw what happened can call 0345 113 5000 and ask to speak to the Aston-based collision investigation unit.
