Five teenagers have been treated by ambulance staff after the car they were in rolled over in South Staffordshire.

An ambulance taking a patient to hospital came across the incident. It was backed up by two further ambulances and a paramedic officer.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a single vehicle with significant damage after having flipped over.

“There were five young men, all aged about 18 who had been in the car. It was extremely wet and windy at the time.

“One of the five, who was a rear seat passenger had suffered a potentially very serious back injury. He was immobilised and taken to New Cross Hospital.

“The driver told ambulance staff that he had come out of the vehicle as it rolled over. He had suffered a shoulder dislocation and was immobilised before being taken to the same hospital.

“The other three were treated at the scene and discharged.”
