A woman and four children have received treatment by ambulance personnel before being taken to A&E following a three car crash in Tettenhall this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Codsall Road at around 8.50am earlier today (Thursday). Three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find three cars which had been involved in a collision.
“The driver of one car, a woman in her 30s, sustained neck pain and a suspected pelvic injury in the collision and needed extricating from the car with help from the fire service. The woman was given pain relief and immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint before being taken to New Cross Hospital by ambulance. Her baby, who suffered no apparent injuries, was also taken to the same hospital as a precaution.
“After assessing the other occupants of the two cars involved, ambulance crews took the decision to convey three other children to New Cross Hospital for further precautionary checks.”
