A FOUR-year-old boy has died after he was pinned against a wall by an out-of-control car in an horrific accident.
Cory Ciesielski , of Tillingham, near Maldon, died from his injuries last Thursday , two weeks after he was hit by a car in Birmingham.
Tragedy struck when the youngster was walking along Cartland Road, in the suburb of Stirchley, with his father and 14-year-old brother on April 13.
The driver of a blue Renault Laguna lost control of his car and was in collision with Cory and his brother.
Cory was crushed against the front wall of house and seriously injured. He was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital, and remained in a critical condition until he lost his fight for life last week.
