West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call to reports of a collision involving a car and a pedestrian on Peartree Lane, Dudley, shortly before 7.15am this morning.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Medical Emergency Incident Response Team (MERIT) were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a man in his sixties had sustained arm injuries and a laceration to his head after being in collision with a car.
“The patient was given pain relief at the scene and immobilised with the use of a head collar and spinal board before being taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.”
My husband was the one to place the call, and First aid until you guys arrived 🙂 Hope the pedistrian is ok.
