A car driver has been treated for multiple injuries after his vehicle collided with a tree and was left buried in bushes following a two-car collision in Birmingham tonight.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident near to Pump Island, Dartmouth Circus, just off the Aston Expressway, shortly before 8.55pm and sent an ambulance, a rapid response paramedic and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in collision, one of which had suffered significant front end damage and come to rest in some bushes following a collision with a tree.

“The driver of the car, a man in his 20s, had been helped from the vehicle by passers-by prior to the arrival of ambulance staff and was breathing and conscious throughout.

“He was treated for a fractured right leg and pelvis injuries. He was immobilised with the use of a pelvic splint and given pain relief before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham on alert.

“The passenger, also a man in his 20s, was assessed at scene but did not require further treatment.

“From the second car there were two further patients, a man and a women. Again, they were both assessed and discharged at scene.”
