A three-year-old girl has died in hospital after she was seriously injured when a car crashed into a fence and rolled over.

Police said the little girl died on Thursday, a day after being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital in a critical condition.

Collision investigators continue to appeal for witnesses and dash cam footage after the vehicle rolled over in Church Road, Yardley, Birmingham, shortly before 10.30pm on Wednesday.

A 22-year-old woman, who was treated in hospital for a head injury, was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and later released under investigation while inquiries continue.

In a statement confirming that the three-year-old had died, West Midlands Police said: “We’re continuing to ask for anyone who was in the area at around 10.30pm and may have information or dash cam footage.

“We’d ask people not to speculate and instead come to us with any information.
