A man has been arrested following a fatal crash in the West Midlands yesterday (Saturday, November 25).

Police were called at around 3.37pm to a collision in Ettingshall, Wolverhampton.

Two women, aged 82 and 76, were found in a critical condition and declared dead at the scene whilst three others from the same vehicle were all taken to hospital. 

 A 90-year-old man remains in a serious condition and two men, aged 79 and 78, are stable. 
A 51-year-old man from a separate vehicle was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and has been released under investigation.  
Millfields Road has now re-opened. 
Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This is a particularly sad set of circumstances and our thoughts go out to all of the families affected.
“This collision involved five vehicles and it’s important that we piece together what happened in order to provide all those involved the answers they deserve.
“We would ask people not to speculate on what happened as it’s unhelpful to the investigation and causes upset to the families. 
“We are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision. In particular, if anyone has any dash-cam that may have captured the collision, please get in touch.”
