tragic loss Parents' heartbreaking tribute to two-week-old baby who died after his pram was hit by a car
"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."
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, England, before hitting the baby's pram at around 4pm on Sunday, West Midlands Police said.
The baby was being pushed along the pavement by a family member and suffered serious injuries.
Police said he was rushed to hospital, but nothing could be done to save him.
He was named yesterday as Ciaran Leigh Morris.
In a tribute, his 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, of the West Midlands Police 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 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."
Police previously said a 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
He was still in custody last night.
A passenger in the BMW and the occupants of the other car are helping the inquiry.
