Two people have died following separate collisions with the same vehicle, police have said.
A 44-year-old pedestrian and cyclist died in Coventry on Sunday morning after the driver, who is thought to have gone on a “rampage”, sped through the city.
Staff were unable to save the two victims, who were taken to hospital in critical condition.
A third person is now receiving treatment for serious injuries sustained in a crash, but they are not thought to be life-threatening.
The two pedestrians were hit on Gosford Street, near Coventry city centre, while the cyclist was hit in a second collision just 10 minutes away on Woodway Lane, Walsgrave.
West Midlands Police tracked the vehicle using drones, but couldn’t apprehend the driver until they crashed into a house also in the Walsgrave area.
The service said in a statement that officers had apprehended a 33-year-old man at 9am on Beckbury Road.
They added that the suspect is currently being questioned in connection to the collisions.
Superintendent Ronan Tyrer, from Coventry Local Policing Area, said police are in the early stages of investigations, and have placed several crime scenes around Coventry, with some roads closed.
He said: “We have now informed the families of all those involved in today’s tragic incidents and our thoughts remain firmly with them at this truly devastating time.
“We are still in the very early stages of our investigations and we have several scenes across Coventry which also means that some roads will be closed for a considerable time.
“We are also searching CCTV and making enquiries and would appeal to anyone who has any information that could help our investigations to contact us at their earliest opportunity.”
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said that drone and K9 teams were called to assist in the incident.
They said: “It’s believed that the car has been involved in several collisions before colliding into a house on Beckbury Road (in Walsgrave).
“Officers, including the drones team and dog unit, were called to search for the suspect after a man made off from the scene.”
Coventry Live has reported that police have shuttered several roads around the city while investigations continue.
Officers have sealed off Gosford Street, Woodway Lane and the surrounding roads in Walsgrave.
