A woman has received emergency medical treatment following a road traffic collision in the Black County today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the incident on the Bridgnorth Road in Wolverhampton at 12.55am this morning.

An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Trust’s MERIT rapid response vehicle, carrying a trauma doctor and a critical area paramedic, were dispatched to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived on scene to find a single vehicle that had left the carriageway and was on its left-hand side in a field. Part of a wooden fence panel was found to have pierced through the windscreen.

“The driver, a woman in her 20’s, was suspended by her seatbelt and had sustained a large laceration to her neck from the wooden panel and a potential shoulder and arm injury.

“The woman, who was the single occupant of the vehicle, was extricated and fully immobilised before being conveyed to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further assessment and specialist treatment.”
