A man has been arrested after a car sped the wrong way up a dual carriageway before hitting two cars and crashing into a garden wall in Northfield last night (Monday 15th October).

West Midlands Police officers spotted a car in Quarry Lane at around 11.30pm which they believed to have been involved in an earlier burglary in Reabrook Road.

The driver failed to stop for officers and, in a desperate attempt to evade capture, headed onto the wrong side of Bristol Road South, driving at speed up the dual carriageway -straight into oncoming traffic.

Two other vehicles were hit before the driver flipped the car and smashed into a garden wall, close to the Quarry Lane junction.

The two occupants were detained by officers, with one being taken to hospital with minor injuries.

A 22 year old man remains in police custody this morning after being arrested on suspicion of failing to stop, dangerous driving, and theft of a car.

  1. Assuming the driver and accomplice are charged and found guilty I hope they suffer some serious and life-changing injuries from this incident that will not only compound their time in prison but also act as a reminder for their reckless deeds for the rest of their pathetic lives.

  2. im just sick and tired of these scum playing havoc with the hard working peoples lives. I bet they have never done a honest days graft in their life and rely on crime to feed their drug habits. Its time we fought back as a society and not allow these sad,pathetic morons win
