FIVE people are believed to have fled the scene following a crash in Dudley.

St James’s Road was partially blocked yesterday evening (Thursday) after a black Peugeot 206 hit a parked silver Ford Focus at around 7.45pm.

Police and fire crews attended but there were no reports of any casualties.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said witnesses saw five people fleeing the Peugeot 206 following the crash, running in the direction of Wolverhampton Street.

The road was re-opened soon after and enquiries are ongoing.
