Officers investigating the incident, together with local neighbourhood officers, will be at the location between 11.30am and 2pm tomorrow, which is one week on from the incident, to talk to motorists and passers-by who may have seen what took place.
Detective Sergeant Simon Kirman, from the Public Protection Unit at Birmingham North Police, said: "The exact circumstances surrounding how the child became injured are currently being investigated and a post mortem will be taking place.
"We are urgently appealing for anyone who may have seen the incident or witnessed how the child managed to fall from the vehicle to contact us."

The child is not being named at this stage, police said.
Witnesses are asked to contact police on 101, quoting OP 2262 at Sutton Coldfield Public Protection Unit.
