A MAN seriously injured in a Solihull hit-and-run has died a month on – and his family has paid tribute.

Police have renewed an appeal for witnesses after Reginald William Nend, 77, succumbed to his injuries on March 17.

The collision involved his Vauxhall Astra and a Renault Laguna in Yardley Wood Road, Shirley, at around 10am on February 14.

He was taken to hospital but sadly died on March 17.

In tribute, his family said: “Reginald will be sadly missed by all the family especially his wife Margaret.

“He was the kindest man who would do anything for anybody, nothing was too much trouble.

“He was sadly taken from us as a result of this accident leaving us all heartbroken and angry, we are still trying to come to terms with the loss.

“We would urge anyone with information to get in touch quoting log 694 14 February.”

A man, 41 was arrested on Monday (25 March) on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been released under investigation.

A man, 32, was arrested soon after the collision on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving and drink driving has also been released as enquiries continue.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “I would urge anyone who hasn’t already spoken to us to get in touch.

“I am particularly keen to hear from anyone with dash-cam footage which could assist our investigation.”
