A two-week-old baby has died in the United Kingdom after a vehicle mounted the footpath, colliding with his pram earlier today.

James Paul Davis, from Walsall, was allegedly driving without insurance when the crash that killed Ciaran Leigh Morris happened on Easter Sunday.

The baby was on the footpath being pushed in a pram when the horror accident occurred and he suffered serious injuries.

A witness to the incident told Sun Online that the child's parents were "hysterical" after the collision, and many people around them were trying to help them calm down. The pram and the baby boy in it were pinned against an iron gate.

A relative suffered a shoulder injury but nobody else was injured.

Dozens of flowers have been left at the scene of the incident.

A section of the High Street has been closed to allow detectives to carry out enquiries.

A two-week-old baby has died following a fatal collision on Brownhills' High Street.

The BMW vehicle is said to have collided with another auto before hitting the boy's buggy, West Midlands Police said.

Police said the boy was taken to hospital but "nothing could be done to save him".

A relative suffered a shoulder injury in the incident.

He is being questioned on suspicion of causing death by risky driving.

It was later reported that a 34-year-old man who may have been at the wheels of the BMW in question, has been arrested and that he is being interrogated.

The route is likely to remain blocked throughout the evening.

Sergeant Mark Crozier, from our serious collision investigation unit, said: "We've all been left numb by the sad death of Ciaran".

'We understand the shock this will have caused but I would ask people not to speculate on what happened'.

"I would ask anyone who was in the area, and has information which can assist our inquiries, to come forward".
