Car lands on parked car in Birmingham

Sunday 12th July 2015 – 7.20am – Claire Brown.

Two teenagers needed hospital treatment after their car rolled over and ended up landing on top of a parked car on a driveway in Ward End early this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Drews Lane in Ward End, Birmingham, at 1.00am (Sunday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and doctors from the West Midlands Central Accident Resuscitation Emergency (CARE) Team attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a badly damaged car which had left the road and landed on top of a parked car in a driveway. Thankfully, the parked car was unoccupied.

“The driver of the car had left the scene when emergency services arrived so assessment wasn’t possible. The two passengers from the car however, both teenagers, were already out of the vehicle.

“One teenager suffered a suspected fractured jaw, lacerations to his face and suspected fractures to his lower leg in the collision. Ambulance staff administered pain relief to the man before he was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board and taken to Heartlands Hospital.

“The second teenager, upon assessment by medics, was found to have suffered suspected serious injuries to his leg and pelvis. The man was given pain relief to stabilise his condition on scene before the team worked to fully immobilise him with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint. The man was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a specialist trauma centre, for further emergency care. The doctor travelled in the ambulance to hospital to continue treatment en route.”
