Steven Chappell, 49, was hit by a Nissan Micra as he crossed Bordesley Green Road, near Adderley Park railway station, on 30 January.

He suffered serious head injuries and died in hospital a week later.

A 38-year-old man has been charged and is due to appear before Birmingham Magistrates' Court on 8 July.

He faces charges of failing to stop at the scene of an accident, aggravated vehicle taking, dangerous driving, and causing death by driving a vehicle whilst the driver is unlicensed, disqualified or uninsured.

A 26-year-old woman who had also been arrested was later released without charge.
