Two pedestrians, including a four-year-old girl, have been seriously injured after they were involved in a collision with a car in Birmingham this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Bosworth Drive in Chelmsley Wood just before 3.30pm and sent two ambulances, a rapid response paramedic, two paramedic area support officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, with a doctor on board, to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Upon arrival crews found four pedestrians who had reportedly been in collision with a car in an incident which resulted in the road being closed.
“One of the patients, a four-year-old girl, was assessed and treated for a head injury and was also suffering from a reduced level of consciousness.
“She was transported to Birmingham Children’s Hospital by land ambulance with the air ambulance doctor travelling with her to continue treatment en-route.
“A second patient, a woman in her 20s, suffered a lower left leg fracture in the incident. She was also treated for cuts to her head and right arm. She was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and scoop stretcher and was given pain relief on scene.
“She was then transported to Heartlands Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
“Two other pedestrains, both children, were uninjured in the incident as was the driver of the car, a man.”
