The friends were hit by the car as they walked along a pavement in the centre of Wednesbury in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The victims, aged 19 and 20, were both seriously injured and taken to hospital.

The driver fled after crashing into the women in Lower High Street just after 1.45am, West Midlands Police said.

Officers believe the women were deliberately targeted.

One of the women has since been discharged while the other remains in hospital with two broken legs, pelvis and shoulder.

West Midlands Police confirmed on Tuesday afternoon no arrests have been made.
