A 31-year-old man from Smethwick has been charged with causing death by careless driving following a fatal car crash on Saturday.

The collision on Grove Lane at the junction with Painters Corner, Smethwick, on Saturday, resulted in the death of a two-month-old baby boy.

A silver Mitsubishi Evolution, registration R54 RMW, was travelling along the dual carriageway towards Oldbury at approximately 6.11pm when it was in collision with a silver Toyota Corolla.

Baby Mohammed Isa was travelling in the Corolla and was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He was later pronounced dead.

A woman from the same vehicle remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition.

Three further people, two men and a woman, from the Corolla also remain in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The 31-year-old has also been charged with failing to stop and report a collision, driving other than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance.

He has been remanded in police custody and will appear before Warley Magistrates Court at 10am on Wednesday.

Inspector Mark Watkins from the Collision Investigation Unit said: "We are still appealing for witnesses, in particular anybody who saw the silver Mitsubishi travelling along Grove Lane prior to the collision.

"The community response to media appeals has been tremendous and officers have spoken to a number of witnesses.

"Anyone with any information is urged to come forward urgently to help us with our enquiries."
