Elderley Woman Dies

Tuesday 14th June 2015 – 9.00pm – Murray MacGregor

An elderly pedestrian has died after a collision with a car despite the best efforts of ambulance staff to save her.

The tragic incident happened on Burney Lane in Ward End, Birmingham at just after 2.00pm.

Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a woman who was unconscious and in a critical condition.  There was no car at the scene.

“Due to the level of injury, the two crews worked together on the same ambulance as she was rapidly conveyed to Heartlands Hospital on blue lights where she arrived just 23 minutes after the call.

“After being stabilised, the same crew then transferred her to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, but sadly she died later in the afternoon.”
