West Midlands Police have launched a murder investigation after a man was found dead with stab wounds in a crashed car after the vehicle was seen driving "erratically" before impact.
West Midlands police attended the scene following reports of a car crashing in Metchley Lane, Birmingham, at around 3pm yesterday. Paramedics raced to the scene to treat the man who was later pronounced dead in hospital.
Authorities closed off the roads and locked down the local area after the incident. Police have now appealed for help from the public requesting anyone who was in the area and may have information to come forward.
A West Midlands Police spokesperson said: "Officers attended and found the man being treated by paramedics but sadly despite their efforts he was later pronounced dead at hospital.
"Roads in the area are cordoned off as enquiries get underway to establish exactly what happened.
"We're keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the car, which was silver, driving erratically from the direction of Harborne Lane prior to the crash. "We're also keen to trace a man seen running from the car, as he may have vital information to help the investigation."
