The pedestrians were involved in a crash with a grey Peugeot in New Road, Willenhall, at around 1.30pm.

Police and paramedics were sent to the scene but the man and woman are not understood to have been seriously injured.

The crash happened at the pedestrian crossing next to The Malthouse Wetherspoons in Willenhall town centre.

The Peugeot remained at the scene with damage to its windscreen and New Road was shut between the two roundabouts in the town centre as a result.

Police cars were preventing traffic from entering New Road from the island at the Royal George and at the Pinson Road island.

New Road has since reopened.

A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "We were called to a collision involving a car and two pedestrians in New Road, Willenhall, just after 1.30pm today.

"A man and woman sustained injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening. "
