One man has died and three others have been taken to hospital following a collision between a car and a house in Birmingham last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Little Francis Grove shortly after 12.20am and sent four ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to discover a car that was on fire having collided with a house.
“The fire was quickly put out by one of our paramedics who then began assessing the patients.
“The driver of the car, a male teenager, was in cardiac arrest and advanced life support began.
“This continued on the way to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham but unfortunately it is understood he died shortly after arrival.
“There were three other patients, all male teenagers, all of whom were taken to Heartlands.
“One was treated for injuries to his face and one for abdominal injuries. The third patient was treated for back and leg pain and was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board before being transported to hospital.”
