A second man has been arrested in connection with the death of a man hit by a lorry in Dudley.

The 26-year-old victim was hit by an HGV in Thorns Road, Quarry Bank, shortly after 15:30 BST on Tuesday and died at the scene.

A 27-year-old man from Dudley has been arrested and is being questioned by officers.

Another man, 21, arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter has been released without charge.

Police said the victim had been involved in a dispute with a man at a hand car wash in Thorns Road moments before he was hit.

Det Sgt Jim Munro said: "This collision happened at a busy time in the afternoon and I know there would have been a number of people in the area that witnessed it.

"I'm also keen to hear from anyone who has any information about the dispute the man was involved in just before the collision."
