Overturned car in Halesowen

Sunday 28th December 2014 – 7pm – Chris Kowalik.

Part of a dual carriageway was closed earlier today after a soft-top car overturned.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Manor Way in Halesowen shortly after 4.55pm today.

A paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and two senior paramedic officers in rapid response vehicles attended along with an ambulance crew.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The driver of the Mazda, a man in his forties, had managed to get out of the vehicle.

“His only visible injury was a five inch laceration to his forehead which was treated at the scene.

“As a precaution, in case of there being a more serious head injury, he was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.

    1. Hi Sean…as per the other reply we sent, we can’t comment about what others are doing, though we always mention the assistance we get from fire colleagues when we work with them to extract patients who are trapped.

  1. Lets start informing the community of all resources mobilised to incidents so they are more educated to the whole spectrum of tax payers funds utilised

    1. Hi Sean…thanks for your comment. Not entirely sure what you are suggesting, but we can’t really comment about what other services are sending as we don’t control them. Having said that, with social media, we are seeing more and more coverage of what the different services are doing in regard to responding to incidents. Hope that helps.
