Victim of hit-and-run crash Steven Chappell dies
A man who was left critically injured in a hit-and-run crash in Birmingham has died.
Father-of-four Steven Chappell was hit by a Nissan Micra as he crossed Bordesley Green Road, near Adderley Park railway station, on 30 January.
Mr Chappell, 49, suffered serious head injuries and died on Monday.
A man, 38, and a 26-year-old woman who were arrested after the crash on suspicion of dangerous driving have been released on police bail.
Officers said Mr Chappell, who had been wearing a bright orange high-visibility jacket when the crash happened at about 142:0 GMT, had been crossing the road to reach his parked lorry.
Police said they had seized a vehicle near to the site of the crash, hours after the incident.
In a statement, Mr Chappell's family described him as a "loving dad to two sons and two daughters, a loving grandfather and a friend to many".
The statement added: "May you rest in peace - we love you."
Sgt Chris Jones, from West Midlands Police, urged anyone with information about the crash to contact officers.
He said: "This is a tragic case in which a much-loved father and grandfather has lost his life in a split second whilst crossing a road, in high-visibility clothing, in broad daylight."
