A 50-YEAR-OLD man has been killed in a crash on Thorns Road in Quarry Bank.

The victim, a pedestrian, was crossing the busy road at around 4.15pm yesterday (Saturday August 28) when he was struck by a black Mercedes estate.

Emergency services rushed to the scene with the Air Ambulance landing on Stevens Park, but sadly the man could not be saved.

PC Chris Ridge from West Midlands Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: "This is a real tragedy: a man simply crossing a road near his home has been hit by a vehicle and lost his life.

"My thoughts are with his family and friends.

"We need to get to the bottom of what happened and what led up to the collision.

"If anyone saw what happened or saw a black Mercedes driving along Thorns Road beforehand then I would ask them to get in touch.

"Similarly, if anyone was driving nearby and has dash-cam I would ask them to check their footage to see if they've caught the Mercedes on camera.
