A murder investigation has been launched after a man was found with stab wounds in a crashed car.
The vehicle was spotted driving “erratic” before the impact, detectives say.
Officers were first called to reports of a car crash at Metchley Lane, Birmingham, at 3pm yesterday.
Paramedics had rushed to the scene to treat the man, but he was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Roads were closed and sidewalks cordoned off as police cordoned off the area yesterday.
Officials have now asked the public for information that could aid their investigation.
They’re looking for a man who ran away from the crashed car.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said: “Officers were present and found the man who was being treated by paramedics but unfortunately, despite their best efforts, he was later pronounced dead at hospital.
“Roads in the area are being cordoned off while investigations are underway to determine exactly what happened.
“We are very interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen the silver car driving erratically out of Harborne Lane prior to the accident.
“We are also very interested in tracking down a man who ran out of the car as he may have important information to help the investigation.”
