A woman and her daughter were lucky to escape serious injury following an RTC on Stourbridge ring road this lunchtime.
The crash occurred just before 1.00pm and two rapid response vehicles, a paramedic officer, and an ambulance attended the scene. An off duty emergency medical technician came across the incident and treated the patients.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a 4×4 vehicle that had left the road and collided with a set of railings and also an estate agents.
“The woman driving the car had suffered serious arm injuries in the crash and was also in shock. She received emergency treatment whilst still inside the vehicle including pain relief.
“With the assistance of the fire service the woman was freed from the vehicle, whilst immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar.
“The woman, believed to be in her late 30’s, was transferred by ambulance to Russell’s Hall Hospital for further treatment.
“The teenage girl travelling in the car was checked over at the scene but did not require further treatment.
“Fortunately, no one in the estate agents suffered any injuries.”
