A two-week-old baby boy has died after his pram was hit by a car on the pavement.
West Midlands police said they believed a BMW had been in a collision with another car in Brownhills area before hitting the pram at about 4pm on Easter Sunday.
The baby, who was being pushed by his family at the time, suffered serious injuries in the incident. He was taken to hospital, but could not be saved. A relative suffered a shoulder injury, but nobody else was injured.
Police said the driver left the scene, but a 34-year-old man was arrested in Bloxwich shortly afterwards. He had been taken into custody and would be questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
Sergeant Mark Crozier, from the collision investigation unit, said: “A baby has tragically died and we’ll be doing all we can to support his family during this deeply devastating time.
“We’re in the process of speaking to witnesses and establishing the circumstances around this collision. I would ask anyone who was in the area, and has information which can assist our inquiries, to come forward.
He added: “We understand the shock this will have caused, but I would ask people not to speculate on what happened.”
Police are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area and may have dashcam footage, either before or at the time of the collision.
