CCTV released to trace the driver of a Vauxhall Mokka after the death of a woman in Erdington.

Sergeant Alan Wood, from the West Midlands Collision Investigation Unit, has released CCTV footage in a bid to trace the driver of a Vauxhall Mokka after the death of a woman in Erdington.

Claire McKenzie, aged 35, sadly died on Sutton New Road, at around 3.45AM on Friday 11th November. She was found collapsed in the road after a suspected hit and run and was confirmed dead at the scene.

After studying CCTV officers are keen to speak to the driver of a black Vauxhall Mokka which was travelling along the road at the time of the incident as they may have crucial information to assist the investigation.

Sergeant Wood, said: “We believe the driver or occupants of the Mokka could help us establish how Claire was injured, so I would ask them to get in touch with us urgently.”

A man, aged 28, who was arrested on Monday 14th November on suspicion of death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene remains on police bail.

Claire had been at a friend’s birthday party earlier that evening and was making her way home.


Her parents have described her as their ‘beautiful fun-loving daughter’. They continue to be supported by specialist officers as they come to terms with their loss.

Sgt Wood added: “We owe it to Claire’s family to find out what happened to her in the early hours of that morning.”

The collision investigation unit can be contacted on 101 or by emailing
