**Update: Police have today released the 22 year old woman and will question her at a later date in connection with the accident in which her 2 year old daughter was killed

From West Midlands Police:

A woman has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and child neglect after her young daughter was killed in a crash yesterday (April 30).

Police were alerted to the collision in Gibbins Road, Selly Oak, at around 4pm where a car had left the road and hit a tree.

Witnesses provided CPR on a two-year-old girl, a back seat passenger, and paramedics later tried to revive the toddler but she was pronounced dead in hospital.

Four other people in the vehicle, including the girl’s mother who was driving, suffered minor injuries.

A post mortem examination will take place in due course to determine the precise cause of death.

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone who saw the collision, and who’s not yet spoken to officers, is asked to call the Collision Investigation Unit on the 101 number.


  1. If she was driving like an idiot then she’s an absolute disgrace. She’s got too live with the fact that she’s killed her two year old daughter for the rest of her life. R.I.P little angel x

    • Shauna how dare you, you do not know the facts, do you not think dani and her family are suffering enough without people like you leaving vile comments…..were you there? Did you see the accident, thats exactly what it was, a pure accident, they happen. Lives have been deverstated and people like you only add to the pain. My thoughts are with all the family at this tragic time. RIP beautiful girl x

  2. No one knows wat happened all we know is a poor baby girl is now sleeping with the angels i think folks need to remember that poor mother has got to live with this for rest of her life my heart goes out to her please i ask people not to judge her no one knows the facts R.I.P Babi girl i don’t no this mother but she lives local to me it hits home wen u have Lil ones of ur own i jus say people are far to quick.to judge

  3. Shauna hasn’t arrested anyone for dangerous driving or judged anybody, that will be for the courts to decide.
    She said ‘if’

    • The only comments that are needed, IF ANY, are of kind thoughtful words. No one should even be thinking in the way Shauna is, if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all. Calling someone a disgrace when they are suffering beyond anything any of us could imagine is a disgrace in its self.
