Police probe under way after man killed near Dudley following dispute at car wash
9:59am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
A MAJOR police investigation is under way after a man was killed in a collision with a lorry on a main road near Dudley.
The 26-year-old man was hit by the HGV in Thorns Road, Quarry Bank, just after 3.30pm yesterday (Tuesday 20 August).
Officers believe that the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene, had been involved in a dispute with another man at a hand car wash in Thorns Road moments before the collision.
However officers would not confirm eyewitness reports he was being chased by someone armed with a hammer at the time of the incident.
Detective Sergeant Jim Munro, from Force CID, said: “This collision happened at a busy time in the afternoon and I know there would have been a number of people in the area that witnessed it.
“I’m also keen to hear from anyone who has any information about the dispute the man was involved in just before the collision.
“If you saw anything that could help our investigation, please come forward as soon as possible.”
Anyone with any information should contact West Midlands Police CID at Harborne by calling 101 or alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
