A teenage cyclist who sadly died following in a collision in Streetly has been named as Daniel Horton.
Daniel, aged 18, was hit by a red Kia Rio on Chester Road, at around 12.30am on Friday (16/09). He was taken to hospital with serious injuries but sadly died on Saturday (17/09).
His family, who have asked for privacy at this sad time, have paid tribute to the caring, funny and loved teenager.
They said:”We are heartbroken to lose our Dan, he was confident, caring, funny, and loved by everyone he met. We are proud to know that as an organ donor this devastating situation will help others.”
The family are currently being supported by specialist officers and the investigating officer has asked for witnesses to come forward.
Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the West Midlands Police Collision Investigation Unit, said: “I am keen to hear form anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed the collision. I would also like to hear from anyone who saw the Kia and the cyclist just before the collision.
“Our thoughts remain with the family at this time.”
The driver of the car, a man, aged 25, was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and has been released on police bail while enquiries continue.
