A man has been jailed for five years for manslaughter after chasing a 26-year-old into the path of a lorry.
Sartaj Aziz was knocked down near the Formula 1 car wash in Thorns Road, Quarry Bank, in August.
Self-employed Garret Fitzpatrick, 27, of Bank Street in Brierley Hill, admitted a charge of manslaughter.
Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Fitzpatrick and Mr Aziz were involved in a dispute moments before the collision took place.
