Here is what we know so far about the incidents in Coventry:
Two people died after a series of collisions involving the same car in Coventry on Sunday morning.
Two pedestrians were struck in separate collisions on Gosford Street at about 8am, before a cyclist was hit by the car on Woodway Lane.
A 44-year-old pedestrian and a 47-year-old cyclist were killed.
Another pedestrian was seriously injured.
The car then collided with a house on Beckbury Road in the city.
A 33-year-old man was later arrested on Beckbury Road following a search by West Midlands Police involving drones and dogs.
The man was arrested on suspicion of murder and has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, police said.
Gosford Street, Woodway Lane and surrounding roads were closed as police investigated the collisions.
The cyclist was named on Monday as hospital worker Joel Carreido.
In a tribute, his family said: “Joel was a loving husband and father of two, who worked extremely hard as a healthcare assistant at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire.
“He will be missed dearly by all that knew him. We thank all of the community for their continued support during this very difficult time. May he rest in peace and God bless his soul.”
Carreido joined University Hospital, Coventry in 2017, working on a care of the elderly and gastroenterology wards.
Professor Andy Hardy, chief executive officer at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, said: “Everyone at the trust is shocked and saddened by this tragic news.
“Joel’s passion for caring for others shone through in everything he did and he left a lasting impression on the patients and families he came into contact with.
“While his work was a huge source of pride, it was evident to everyone who knew Joel that the role he enjoyed the most was being a loving husband and a father to his two cherished children.
“Joel will be sorely missed by us all and our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.”
Police are still in the process of contacting the family of the 44-year-old pedestrian who died.
Retired builder Barry Dean, 76, whose home overlooks Beckbury Road’s junction with Woodway Lane, said part of his house will have to be rebuilt after the car struck his property.
He said a black Mercedes hatchback made a very loud bang as it smashed into his detached home.
“I was just sitting in the room watching the football on television, and at eight o’clock – bang," he said.
“Because the front door was locked I had to go and get my keys. I opened the front door, came out and he (the driver) was gone… legged it.
“The police turned up. They sent a drone up… there was a helicopter and police dogs.”
