Monday 10th March 2014 – 6.45am – Jamie Arrowsmith.
Three men appeared to escape serious injuries despite being involved in a two car road traffic collision in Bilston late last night (Sunday).
The crash took place on Price Street at approximately 10.10pm and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, two BASICS doctors, a paramedic support officer and two community paramedics to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found two cars that had been in collision, one of which had suffered front end damage.
“The patient with the most serious injuries, a man believed to be in his late 40s, had managed to free himself from his vehicle.
“Following assessment from ambulance staff he was treated for abdominal pain and lower leg injuries before being conveyed to New Cross hospital.
“The two other patients, both men reported to be in their early 20s, had to be extricated from their vehicle with the help of the fire service. Once freed they were assessed by ambulance crews and whilst thankfully appearing uninjured, they were taken to New Cross and Walsall Manor hospitals respectively as precautions.
“All three patients were fully immobilised at the scene with the use of neck collars and spinal boards.”
