West Midlands Police has appealed for information after the man in his 20s died when the car hit a tree on Burton Road.
Officers have said that no other vehicles were involved in the crash and the road was cordoned off for forensic examination. It was re-opened just after 8.30am.
A spokesman for the force said: "We would appeal to anyone who has information or dash cam footage from around the time of the collision to get in contact with us.
"Our serious collision investigators are working to establish what happened and anyone with information or dash cam footage should contact us via Live Chat on our website or by emailing FL_COLLISION_INVEST@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk quoting log 110 of the 14/11."
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived to find a car which had collided with a tree. The driver, a man, was in a critical condition and was rapidly extricated from the vehicle with help from the fire service.
"Once released, ambulance crews commenced advanced life support. Sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased on scene a short time later.”
