A man has been taken to hospital in a serious condition after being involved in a road traffic collision in Walsall in the early hours.

 West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls to reports of a car which had left the road and collided with a lamppost on West Bromwich Road near to Walstead Road in Walsall at around 2.15am (Thursday).
