West Midlands Police (WMP) has released some disturbing footage (scroll down) of the moment when a woman and her dog are hit by a car on Doe Bank Lane, Great Barr.
The CCTV footage has been released as part of an urgent appeal for information.
The woman survived her injuries, but her beloved pet dog ‘Millie’ tragically died at the side of the road.
The collision happened just before 5 pm on Wednesday, 22nd July.
The crystal-clear CCTV footage shows several people running away from the scene.
West Midlands Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace them, and are asking anyone with information to get in touch with them ASAP.
Officers are also trying to find the black Astra that can be seen in the footage to stop further down the road.
Investigators believe that the two cars were travelling together and that the people in the vehicles are probably friends with each other.
Anyone with information is urged to get in touch with WMP via Live Chat at www.west-midlands.police.uk 8 am-midnight or call 101 anytime quoting log 3677 of 22nd July.
To remain 100% anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
