A spokesman from West Midlands Police said: "The crystal-clear CCTV footage shows a number of people running away from the scene.

"We are appealing to trace them, and need anyone with information to get in touch.

"We are also trying to find the black Astra that stops further down the road.

"We believe the two cars were travelling together and the people are probably friends with each other."

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "An off-duty nurse was on scene administering first aid to the pedestrian, a woman, who had been involved in a collision with a car.

"The woman suffered serious injuries and, once treated and stabilised on scene by ambulance staff, she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further trauma treatment.”

Anyone with information is urged to call West Midlands Police on 101, quoting log number 3677 of July 22.
