Two-Week-Old Baby Dies After Pram Hit By Car On Pavement

A 34-year-old man is to appear in court.

The parents of a two-week-old boy who died after his pram was hit by a car have paid tribute to their son.

A BMW is understood to have been involved in a collision with another car in High Street, Brownhills, before striking the baby’s pram at around 4pm on Easter Sunday, West Midlands Police previously said.

The baby was being pushed along the pavement by family at the time and suffered fatal injuries.

On Monday, he was named as Ciaran Leigh Morris.

In a tribute, Ciaran’s parents said: “Mommy’s and Daddy’s hearts will always ache, we love you more than anything.

“We didn’t get to keep you for long but we are happy we had the chance to meet you, look after you and call you our son.

“Fly high angel.”

Sergeant Mark Crozier, from West Midlands Police’s serious collision investigation unit, said: “We’ve all been left numb by the sad death of Ciaran. He was just two weeks old and his life has been tragically taken away.

“To see the loss of someone so young is difficult for us as officers, but we know the pain is even greater for Ciaran’s family.

“We’ll be doing all we can to support them while also trying to establish what happened leading to the collision.

“I would ask people to please respect the family at this sad time and allow them the privacy to grieve.”

On Monday, James Paul Davis, 34, was charged with causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by driving while uninsured.

He faces further charges of failing to stop at the scene of a collision and failure to report a collision.

Davis, from Walsall, was remanded in police custody to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

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

Police are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the area and may have dashcam footage, either before or at the time of the collision.
