A motorcyclist killed in a collision was a West Midlands police officer, it has been revealed.

Ramin Tolouie, 40, from Sutton Coldfield, was on his way home from work on 16 October when his motorbike and a Corsa car collided.

The crash happened on Sutton Road in Wylde Green.

Mr Tolouie, who was known as Ram, was stationed at Erdington police station as a response officer for Birmingham North Local Policing Unit (LPU).

'Big character'

He was married and had a 16-year-old daughter.

Ch Sup James Andronov, Birmingham North LPU Commander, said: "Ram was a big character, his team and all who knew him on Birmingham North LPU are devastated at his loss.

"Ram's loss has been felt all the more, as officers who attended the scene were colleagues of Ram's who had been speaking with him only minutes before he left work.

"The ambulance crew who were first on the scene had attended an incident with Ram whilst he was on duty only a few hours earlier."

He extended his sympathies to Mr Tolouie's family and said the force would be doing everything it could to support them.

The driver of the car, a 25-year-old man from Sutton Coldfield, was arrested at the time on suspicion of causing death by careless driving.

He has been bailed pending further inquiries.

Any witnesses to the collision are asked to contact police.
