A CAR was found abandoned in a Kingswinford street after being driven erratically and nearly missing a member of the public.

The car was discovered by police in Furber Place just before 9am this morning (September 12).

A spokesperson from West Midlands Police said on Twitter: "The vehicle was called into us following a near miss with a member of the public. Later calls show the vehicle to be involved in a RTC."

The car was then dumped and the driver left the scene.

Police confirmed enquiries are ongoing.
