Tuesday 10th June 2014 – 5.12pm – Murray MacGregor.
The driver of a supermarket delivery van was glad of a little help after the vehicle he was driving ended up on its side after a collision with a car in Darlaston.
The collision happened at just before 3.00pm on Darlaston Road at the junction with Forge Street.
Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene after no fewer than five 999 calls about the incident.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a Tesco delivery van on its side with damage to its near side and a Mercedes car with front end damage.
“Fortunately neither driver was seriously hurt, but the crash did cause considerable congestion in the area.
“The driver of the van a man estimated to be in his late 40s had to be helped out of the overturned vehicle but had only minor injuries.
“The car driver, who was estimated to be in his late 20s or early 30s was similarly largely unhurt.
“Both were assessed by ambulance staff at the scene but neither required to go to hospital.”
