One person has died and two others have been seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Walsall today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Ryle Street in Bloxwich shortly after 8.15am this morning.
Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were dispatched to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival at the scene crews found a car and a coach that had been in collision.
“The driver of the car, a woman, was treated for serious multiple injuries. Due to the nature of her injuries, the doctor from the air ambulance gave the woman an anaesthetic at the scene before she was airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
“The front seat passenger, a teenage boy, was treated for pelvic injuries and was taken to the same hospital, via land ambulance, for further assessment and treatment.
“The rear seat passenger, a girl, was assessed by ambulance crews at the scene but unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save her and she was sadly confirmed deceased at the scene.
“The driver of the coach, a man, was assessed and discharged by ambulance crews at the scene.”
