Three people have been treated by ambulance crews following a road traffic collision, which left one of the vehicles on its roof.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of two cars that had been in collision. One of the vehicles had overturned and was found to be on its roof.

“The occupants from both of the vehicles were out of the cars on the crew’s arrival.

“Two occupants from the overturned car were treated at the scene. The driver, a man, was treated for an arm injury before being conveyed to Princess Royal Hospital.
