An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a senior paramedic officer, a paramedic area support officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were dispatched to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of a child and a mini bus that had been in collision.
“On arrival at the scene, crews found a young girl on the pavement who had sustained head and chest injuries. She was treated by ambulance personnel at the scene for her injuries. She was given pain relief and fully immobilised before being airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment and specialist treatment.
