A 74-year-old car passenger has died following a crash in the West Midlands.

The woman, from Dudley, was taken to hospital with severe head and spinal injuries after the crash in Brierley Hill on Friday but later died.

Her 85-year-old husband, who was driving, was treated for minor injuries, a police spokesman added.

A 23-year-old man was arrested and bailed on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after the crash on Pedmore Road.

Sgt Alan Wood, from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit, said a number of witnesses had come forward.

He said he wanted to hear from occupants of a white Audi TT, a white Citroen DS and a white Seat Ibiza who were travelling along Pedmore Road away from Merry Hill at about 14:00 GMT.
