A collision involving a car and a mini bus left 11 occupants requiring assessment and treatment by ambulance staff in Birmingham this afternoon.
The incident happened in Bromford Road, Hodge Hill at around 3.15pm (Thursday). A paramedic area support officer with a paramedic observer on board together with three ambulances attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The car sustained significant damage in the collision with the mini bus. There were a total of 11 patients at the scene.
“The three occupant from the car, a man, a woman and a two-year-old child, were assessed by ambulance staff. The child sustained a minor head injury and the two adults suffered less serious injuries. All three were taken to Heartlands Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
“In the mini bus were two adults and six children, aged between eight and 11. Once assessed, ambulance crews found that four of the children and the driver were uninjured and were discharged from care at the scene. The remaining two children and an adult from the mini bus sustained a range of minor injuries and were also taken to the same hospital as a precaution.”
