Police have launched a murder hunt after a man involved in a car crash died from a fatal stab wound. Emergency crews were called to Metchley Lane, in Birmingham on Thursday afternoon.
Paramedics found a man inside the car who had been stabbed and rushed him to hospital where he was pronounced dead. West Midlands Police launched a murder investigation and are appealing to any witnesses who may have seen another man running away from the crashed car.
A force spokesperson said: “The man was found in a car which had crashed in Metchley Lane, Birmingham. Officers attended and found the man being treated by paramedics but sadly despite their efforts he was later pronounced dead at hospital.
