Wednesday 2nd September 2015 – 5.05pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.
Three out of four vehicles caught fire in a road traffic collision in Birmingham this afternoon but amazingly there were no patients requiring treatment from ambulance staff.
The crash happened just before 3.40pm on Farnborough Road and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance and two paramedic area support officers to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered four vehicles that had been in collision, three cars and a van. It is believed that one of the cars collided with the three other vehicles which were all stationary and empty at the time.
“Two of the cars and the van were ablaze when emergency services arrived, but thankfully, it quickly became apparent that there were no patients.
“It is remarkably lucky that there were no patients to treat as the dramatic nature of the incident could have led to a much more serious set of circumstances.”
