A driver has escaped serious injury from a crash that had ambulance staff fearing for his life.

The ambulance service was called to Alcester Road, Hollywood in south Birmingham at just before 5.40am this morning, Wednesday.

A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance, a paramedic officer and the MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a car that had suffered massive impact to the driver’s door after the car had collided with a tree.

“Working with firefighters, the man was immobilised as he was extricated from the wreckage after the roof had been removed and the passenger door removed.

“Despite the level of damage, the man had suffered what appeared to be remarkably minor injuries. The man, who was estimated to be in his 20’s was complaining of head pain and was a bit disorientated.

“After a full assessment by the doctor and ambulance staff, he was taken to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further assessment.”
