Belgrave Middleway closed in both directions after fatal collision

A man has died following a collision on Belgrave Middleway just after 11.40PM (26/03).

The man was struck by a dark coloured Ford Mondeo as it travelled along the west bound carriageway of the road. The car was being pursued from Short Heath Road in Erdington after the driver failed to stop for police.

The pursuit was started by response officers but was then continued by specialist traffic officers. It was abandoned when the car went through a red light shortly before the collision occurred.

Paramedics were called to assist but tragically nothing could be done to save the 45-year-old pedestrian and he died at the scene. Specialist officers are supporting his family.

The Mondeo fled the scene and police are still searching for the driver. He is being urged to give himself up.

Belgrave Middleway has been closed in both directions between Bristol Road and Haden Circus while emergency services and collision reconstruction experts establish the circumstances of the incident.

Motorists are being asked to avoid the area until the road is re-opened later today.


West Midlands Police Professional Standards Department has informed the IPCC as is normal procedure in a collision where a police vehicle is involved.


Anyone who witnessed what happened is asked to call the Collision Investigation Unit on 101.
