Four teenagers have been fortunate to escape serious injury when the car they were travelling in came to rest on its roof following a collision with street furniture near Brierley Hill this evening.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Brierley Hill Road in Wordsley at 6.55pm and sent three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a rapid response paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received seven 999 calls about this particular road traffic collision and on arrival, crews discovered a car which had come to rest on its roof after it is believed to have collided with street furniture.

“There were four patients, all of whom had managed to free themselves from the vehicle.

“The most seriously injured patient was a 17-year-old woman who was treated by ambulance staff for a nasty cut to her forehead. She was then taken to Russells Hall Hospital.

“The remaining three patients, two 19-year-old men and another 17-year-old woman all escaped with minor injuries.

“They were also taken to Russells Hall as a precaution.

“All four are extremely lucky not to have suffered more serious injuries given the nature of the collision.”
