A MAN has been arrested in connection with the death of a man in Quarry Bank yesterday afternoon (Tuesday August 20).
The 26-year-old was killed when he was involved in a collision with a lorry on Thorns Road, just after 3.30pm.
Police and colleagues from the ambulance service attended but despite their best efforts he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers believe the victim had been involved in a dispute with another man at a hand car wash in Thorns Road moments before the collision.
After making a number of enquiries, detectives this afternoon (Wednesday August 21) arrested a 21-year-old man from an address in Quarry Bank on suspicion of manslaughter.
Detective Sergeant Jim Munro, from Force CID, said: "If you saw anything that could help our investigation, please come forward as soon as possible."
Anyone with any information should contact Force CID at Harborne by calling 101 or alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
