A young girl required emergency treatment from medics earlier tonight (Thursday) following a road traffic incident in Birmingham.

After receiving a call just after 6.45pm, West Midlands Ambulance service sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene in Reservoir Road, Selly Oak.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find an eight-year-old girl with a serious head injury and a bicycle lying nearby.

“The circumstances that lead to the girl’s injuries are not known, but ambulance staff quickly began working to assess and treat the youngster, who had also suffered minor chest injuries.

“Upon realising the serious nature of her head injury, the girl was anaesthetised and taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, who were alerted to her condition prior to arrival, for further treatment. The doctor and community paramedic escorted the girl on her way to the hospital.

“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”
