The heartbroken family of a teenage boy killed in a fatal collision have released a tribute to their ‘beautiful son who will be deeply missed by us all.’
Brae Bull, aged 17, died after the car he was travelling in collided with a tree near to Bosty Lane in Aldridge, Walsall, shortly before midnight on July 21. Police are investigating the incident which happened after ‘a short police pursuit’.
The incident was referred to the IOPC who, following a review, asked for a local investigation by the West Midlands Police Professional Standards Department (PSD). As part of the investigation WMP said that it will be reviewing in-car footage and body worn video footage.
Brae’s family have released a photograph of their loved one as well as a moving tribute which said: “As a family we are truly heartbroken from the tragic passing of Brae. Our beautiful son touched the hearts of so many people, he was a polite, cheeky and loveable boy who was taken from us far too soon. He was greatly loved and will be deeply missed by us all.”
Officers gave initial medical aid including CPR to Brae at the scene until the ambulance service arrived but unfortunately nothing could be done to save him. A 16-year-old boy and two men aged 21 and 22 were taken to hospital for injuries which were not deemed life threatening. One remains in hospital while the other two have been discharged.
Detective Sergeant Julie Lyman, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “The investigation is still ongoing. Our thoughts remain firmly with Brae’s family and we continue to support them through this difficult time. I ask for any witnesses who have not already spoken with police to come forward, which also includes anyone with dashcam footage, ring doorbell or CCTV footage to get in touch with us."
