Three girls have had an incredibly lucky escape after they were in collision with a car in Edgbaston.

The incident happened at the junction of Somerset Road and Edgbaston Park Road shortly before 10.20am and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent one ambulance to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The three Birmingham University students were walking to class when the car lost control, spun and collided with railings twice before coming to rest 50-yards further up the road.

“In the process, the car clipped the three students.

“Amazingly none of them suffered serious injuries. The 18, 20 and 21-year-olds all suffered minor leg injuries.  They were assessed by the crew but were discharged at scene.

“The driver, a 20-year-old man, was uninjured.

“The crew commented that all three girls were incredibly lucky.  Had the timing been only slightly different, the result would have been much more serious.”
