A man has died and three other patients assessed by ambulance staff following a road traffic collision in Shirley this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident near the junction of Bills Lane and Langcombe Road at approximately 2.45pm.
Two ambulances together with a paramedic in a rapid response car; a community paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews attended a road traffic collision involving a car and small van.
“Sadly, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the driver of one of the vehicles who was confirmed dead at the scene.”
“A child travelling in the same vehicle was treated for head and abdominal injuries. He was anaesthetised by a doctor before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
“Two men in their twenties travelling in the second vehicle involved were treated for minor injuries. The passenger was taken to Hartlands Hospital as a precautionary measure.”
