In the early hours of Sunday 16th December there was a horrendous 3 car pile up in Birmingham city centre. Investigators are trying to piece together what caused the horror smash, which took place in the underpass on Lee Bank Middleway – at the junction of Bristol Road.
Three men were among the fatalities, while a black cab driver and his two passengers, a man and a woman, were also killed.
Victims were thrown from their vehicles while a black cab driver and his two passengers, a man and woman, died after the vehicle was left on its side. A fourth man travelling in the car remains in a critical condition at the city’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
For something like this to occur just a week before Christmas is truly upsetting. While it remains unknown what exactly caused the horror smash, road users are advised to be extra vigilant when out and about at this time of year.
Safe driving from Britannia!
