Commuters faced long delays in the middle of Birmingham last night after a three car collision that left one on its roof.

The crash happened just off Bristol Street outside the O2 Academy at about 5.25pm on Monday evening.

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

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they were told that one of the cars had rolled over twice. The man and woman in their 30s who were inside it had managed to get out of the vehicle. Both were complaining of neck and back pain. They were immobilised before being taken to City Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“A woman in her 30s from a second car and a man in his 30’s from the third were both assessed by ambulance staff at the scene but were discharged.

“The second car had damage down the driver’s side with some of the windows broken. The third car, a Jaguar, had rear end damage.”
