The parents of a two week old boy who died after his stroller was hit by a car have paid tribute to their son.
A BMW is believed to have been involved in a collision with another car on High Street, Brownhills, before hitting the baby’s stroller around 4 p.m. on Easter Sunday, West Midlands Police previously said.
The baby was pushed onto the sidewalk by the family and was seriously injured.
Police said he was hospitalized but nothing could be done to save him.
On Monday he was named as Ciaran Leigh Morris.
In a tribute, Ciaran’s parents said: “Mommy’s and Papa’s hearts will always ache, we love you more than anything.
“We couldn’t keep you for long, but we’re glad we had the opportunity to meet you, look after you and call you our son.
“Fly high angel.”
Sergeant Mark Crozier of the West Midlands Police Department of Serious Collision Investigation said: “Ciaran’s sad death deafened us all. He was only two weeks old and his life was tragically taken away.
“Seeing 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 will do everything we can to support them and at the same time find out what led to the collision.
“I would ask people to respect the family during this sad time and give them the privacy to mourn.”
Police previously said a 34-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of causing death from dangerous driving.
He remains in custody. A passenger in the BMW and the occupants of the other vehicle help with the request.
Dozens of flowers have been left at the scene of the incident.
The police are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the area and may have dashcam footage before or at the time of the collision.
