A three car collision in a Staffordshire town this afternoon caused traffic problems in the area but, fortunately, no one was seriously injured.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Bridge Cross Road, near to Chase Terrace Technology College, in Burntwood at around 12.30pm today (Friday). An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Three cars had reportedly been in a low speed collision outside the college.
“The driver of one car, a 17 year-old-girl, was assessed by crews and was found to be suffering from back pain. Ambulance crews worked with the fire service to extricate her from the car. The girl was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by ambulance to Stafford Hospital.
“The other occupants from the vehicles were assessed at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.
“The collision closed the road in both directions, causing traffic problems for motorists for a time.”
We were caught up in traffic jam and very concerned that someone was seriously hurt .Very relieved to know not as bad as it seemed. Wonderful emergency services.
