A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving in connection with a car crash that killed a mother of two from Kingswinford.
Samantha Jennings, aged 26, died in the car crash on the A449 at Cookley, near Kidderminster, in the early hours of December 8. She was a front seat passenger in a black Vauxhall Astra which left the road and hit a tree, near the Island Pool pub.
The male driver was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with serious injuries, while a male rear seat passenger was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital with minor injuries.
Police said today that a 22-year-old Stourbridge man was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, driving while unfit through drink or drugs, and possessing cannabis.
He has been released on police bail until May 13, pending further inquiries into the death of the care assistant.
