An 84-year-old woman has died in hospital a day after a crash saw two cars hit a lamppost in Birmingham.

The woman, a passenger in a Hyundai i10, suffered head and internal injuries in the crash on Court Lane, Erdington, about 15:00 BST on Sunday.

The 29-year-old driver of the Seat Leon involved was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and bailed until July as inquiries continue, police said.

A 50-year-old woman driving the Hyundai suffered multiple fractures.

She remains in a stable condition in hospital, the police spokesman added.

Sgt Alan Wood said: "Several witnesses stopped at the scene and have been spoken to, but I would urge anyone else who may have seen what happened or the vehicles travelling along Court Lane to contact me and my team."
