A woman had to be cut free from her vehicle following a two-car road traffic collision in Codsall this morning.
The incident left both cars with front end damage and resulted in two patients being transported to New Cross hospital after receiving treatment from ambulance staff.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the incident which occurred at 11am at the junction of the A41 and A464.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two cars with front end damage and it quickly became evident that one of the patients, a woman in her 60s, was going to have be helped out of her vehicle.
“Ambulance staff worked closely with the fire service to cut the woman, who was a passenger, out of the car. She was immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and treated for neck and back pain. The driver of the car was uninjured.
“The driver of the second car, a woman in her 60s, managed to free herself from the vehicle. She was also immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and treated for minor leg injuries and chest pain.
“Both patients were then transported to New Cross Hospital.”
