Despite the best efforts of emergency services, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
A BMW 520D car, believed to have been involved in the collision, has been recovered and police are urging the driver to come forward.
West Midlands Police have released a photograph of the vehicle involved as they hope members of the public might recognise the car and provide them with vital information.
