Four people have been fortunate to escape serious injury following an RTC in Walsall yesterday.

The crash occurred on Yew Tree Place, Bloxwich at around 4.20pm. Three ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in a significant collision. One vehicle had suffered substantial damage.

“The driver of the badly damaged car, an 18 year old man, suffered neck pain, and an arm laceration. He received treatment at the scene from medics and was transferred to Walsall Manor Hospital for further treatment. Gladly there was no passenger travelling in this vehicle.

“Three people travelling in the second car suffered multiple minor injuries. A woman in her 80’s and a second woman in her 40’s, both suffered chest pain. Both received treatment and were transferred to the same hospital.

“The man travelling in the second vehicle, believed to be in his 60’s, declined treatment from paramedics.

“Considering the damage to the vehicles the occupants were fortunate not to have suffered more serious injuries.”
