Two people have died after a fleeing driver crashed their car during a police pursuit in Wolverhampton.
The single-vehicle collision happened on Wood Hayes Road at around 04:00 hours on Sunday.
As is standard for incidents such as this one, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is investigating the circumstances.
A spokesperson for the IOPC said:
“The fatal collision involved one vehicle and two people sadly died at the scene”.
Staffordshire Police said that as the incident had been referred to the IOPC it would be “inappropriate for us to comment further at this time”.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
