Appeal for dash cam footage following crash on the Ring Road

Police are today appealing for the public’s help following a single vehicle crash on the Longwell Green to Hicks Gate stretch of the A4174 Ring Road.

It happened at about 8.40am on Saturday 9th March when a blue BMW 3 Series was reported to have lost control and collided with a lamp post and then a rocky embankment.

Police believe a second vehicle – a silver BMW – was in the area at the time of the incident and are keen to speak to the driver who they believe may have useful information.

They would also like to hear from anyone else who was in the area and may have information, in particular, who may have captured the incident on a mobile phone or a dash camera.

The driver of the BMW was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and dangerous driving and released under investigation.

Anyone able to help is asked to contact the police, quoting reference 5219051233.
