Officers were called to Wye Cliff Road, in Handsworth, on Monday, March 9, after a woman was run over by a car when she collapsed shortly before 10.40pm.

The 35-year-old suffered serious spinal injuries – and one month on remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition with potentially life-changing injuries.

The driver of the car failed to stop and detectives now believe the vehicle involved to be a dark coloured old-style Mazda 3, 2003 to 2009 model.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: "The front registration plate on the care is located off centre to the left of the bumper, which is not common on this model of vehicle.

"So we are appealing for anyone who recognises this description or particular feature to contact us.

"We are also appealing to any witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage to get in touch."

Anyone with information asked to call West Midlands Police on 101, quoting log number 3787 of March 9.

Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or at
