Police are appealing for witnesses after a man has suffered life threatening injuries following a collision in Birmingham on Saturday night (January 13).

Officers were called to the junction of Belgrave Middleway and Highgate Road just outside the city centre near Balsall Heath at around 6.30pm to a collision involving a vehicle and a pedestrian.  The pedestrian, a man in his 40s, was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries and remains in a serious but stable condition.

The vehicle involved fled the scene. Shortly after, officers spotted a vehicle being driven dangerously. They traced this to an address and arrested two men, aged 39 and 27 on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. The men remain in custody for questioning.

Det Sgt Julie Lyman, from the serious collision investigation unit, said: "We are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and recalls seeing a collision or was travelling on the road with a dash cam to contact us.

"A man has suffered traumatic injuries and we need to piece together what happened."
