The strength of modern cars has ensured that four men have escaped serious injury after a crash in Birmingham.

The crash happened at the junction of Cattell Road and Bordesley Green Road at 4.10pm on Monday afternoon.

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Thankfully the level of injuries were all relatively minor.

“One man in his 30s was cut free from his vehicle by firefighters. He was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution and taken to Heartlands Hospital complaining of right sided pain.

“There were three men in the second car – two estimated to be in their 30s and one in his teens. All three were complaining of whiplash and were taken to the same hospital for further assessment.”

Due to the location of the collision, there were considerable traffic delays in the area.
