Monday 29th December 2014 – 6.25pm – Murray MacGregor.

A woman has been cut free from the wreckage of a car after a two vehicle crash in Shirley.

The crash happened at the junction of Green Lane and Haslucks Green Road at about 3.30pm on Monday afternoon.

A rapid response vehicle was on scene five minutes after the call and was backed up by an ambulance shortly afterwards.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a woman, estimated to be in her 50s, in a red Renault Clio who was complaining of severe neck pain after the collision.

“Due to her condition, ambulance staff worked with firefighters to extricate her from the wreckage.

“She was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.

“The woman in the burgundy Ford Fiesta had managed to get out of her vehicle herself. After being assessed by ambulance staff, she was discharged on scene.”
