Two drivers sought after man killed in Lye crash

Police are appealing for the drivers of two cars to come forward after a man died in a crash in the Black Country.

The 21-year-old was driving a black BMW 325 on Stourbridge Road in Lye when he hit "street furniture", West Midlands Police said. He died at the scene.

Officers said they believed two other cars were involved and drivers could have contributed to events at about 19:00 GMT on Friday, but did not stop.

They were in a white car, possibly a hatchback, and a small, dark vehicle.

CCTV from both the scene, outside a car dealership, and the surrounding area was being examined and anyone with information about what happened should contact the force, police said.

"We're also speaking to witnesses, but we would like to hear from anyone else who can assist us in discovering how this young man has tragically lost his life," a spokesperson explained.

"Our specialist investigators are in touch with the man's family, so that we can keep them fully updated with our investigation.

"Our thoughts remain with them, after receiving such devastating news."
