A fundraiser has been launched to raise money for a woman who was knocked down in a horrific Great Barr crash.

The woman and her dog were both hit on Doe Bank Lane in Great Barr - CCTV from West Midlands Police

Friends, family and neighbours have donated towards the online fundraising page to help the victim – known as Pat – after the collision in July on Doe Bank Lane.

The elderly woman was walking her dog Millie along the road when a car swerved across the street and ploughed into both of them.

She suffered serious injuries and her dog died from the impact. The people in the car fled the scene.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested soon after police launched an appeal but has since been released under investigation.

The fundraiser has raised almost £200 so far.
