A man and a woman have been seriously injured after being in collision with a car in Wolverhampton this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a car which had collided with two pedestrians on Stubbs Road at 11.40am today (Thursday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a responder paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT Trauma doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a man and a woman, both believed to be in their 20s, who had been seriously injured. The couple were reportedly loading items into the boot of their car when another car collided with them.
“The woman sustained fractures to her leg and pelvis together with suspected internal injuries. The doctor and crews administered fluid and pain relief to the woman to stabilise her condition before she was fully immobilised with the use of a splint, neck collar and spinal board. Due to the nature of her injuries, the woman was airlifted to the regional trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for specialist treatment.
“The man sustained a fractured leg and was given pain relief by crews before they carefully immobilised him with a leg splint, neck collar and spinal board. Crews conveyed the man by land ambulance on blue lights to New Cross Hospital.
“No one else was injured in the crash.”
