A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving after a two-week-old baby boy was hit by a car.
Ciaran Morris was in a pram on his first walk being pushed along the pavement by his parents when the crash happened in Brownhills, Walsall.
James Paul Davis, 34, has been remanded in custody, police said.
A statement from West Midlands Police said: ‘A man has been charged in connection with a crash that killed a two-week-old baby boy in Brownhills yesterday afternoon.
‘Ciaran Leigh Morris was being pushed along the pavement by family at the time and suffered serious injuries. He was rushed to hospital but nothing could be done to save him.
‘James Paul Davis, aged 34, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, causing death by driving while uninsured, failing to stop at the scene of a collision and failure to report a collision.
Speaking at the collision site today, Camaron’s aunt said: ‘[Ciaran] was four weeks premature, so he shouldn’t even have been here.’

A family friend was in tears as he laid flowers where part of a brick wall was reduced to rubble.
‘I know the family and all I can say is they are numb with grief,’ he told The Sun.
‘It was maybe the first time they had taken the baby out together and this happens.
‘It’s an unimaginable horror they are going through. One second and the most precious thing in their lives is gone.’
