The family of a 45 year old man killed when he was involved in a collision with a car in Birmingham on Sunday evening (26th March) have paid tribute to him. Police have confirmed a car found burnt out in Northfield soon after is thought to have been involved.

Dil Bahadur Subedi: “well respected son, husband, father and work colleague”

Mr Subedi was a pedestrian on Belgrave Middleway in the city centre at around 11.40pm when he was struck by a green Mondeo estate as it travelled along the outbound carriageway of the road.

Police had been pursuing the car since the driver failed to stop in Erdington and had abandoned pursuit shortly before the collision after the car drove through a red light.

Police believe that a green Mondeo found burnt out in Northfield in the early of hours of Monday morning was the vehicle involved in the collision. It is thought that the car was stolen from the Bordesley Green area on Thursday 16th March.

Mr Subedi’s family said: “We have tragically lost a good son, husband, father and well-respected work colleague. The family wish to be given privacy at this difficult time.”

Inspector Steve Radford, from the force’s Collision Unit, said: “I would urge anyone who has any information on the movements of this vehicle before and after the collision to get in touch with my team.

“Our enquiries so far suggest that the car involved was a green Ford Mondeo Estate that had BBS alloys and a tow bar. If you have any information please call my team on 101.

“The family of Mr Subedi are being supported by specialist officers at this tragic time and our thoughts remain with them.”
