POLICE are appealing for information into an Oldbury crash which left a man fighting for his life.

The man, a driver, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after the crash on Wolverhampton Road, between Pound Road and Brandhall Road, at around 6.40pm yesterday (Monday December 4).

Police said they arrested the driver of another vehicle involved in the smash on suspicion of drug driving - but they have since been released with no further action.

Officers said they were called to a crash involving three vehicles.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes from West Midlands Police's Serious Investigation Collision Unit said: "We believe at this time that the first two vehicles were stationary following an earlier collision and have then been struck by a third, however we need to carefully piece together all of the evidence.

“I would therefore appeal to anyone who was on the Wolverhampton Road at that time and recalls seeing a collision or was travelling on the road with dash cam to contact us.

"As always I would ask people to consider those involved and their families and do not speculate on what has happened.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision or anyone with dash cam footage is urged to get in contact with police via Live Chat on our website, or call 101 quoting 4147 of 04/12/23. You can email detectives direct at sciu@westmidlands.police.uk
