A teenager was amongst three people who received treatment from the ambulance service following a two car collision in Birmingham this afternoon which generated seven 999 emergency calls.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Portland Road, Edgbaston, shortly before 5.55pm and sent three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival at the scene crews discovered two cars that had suffered significant damage and three patients, all of whom were conscious throughout.

“From the first car there was a man in his 20s and a teenage boy who required assistance.

“The man was treated for a leg injury and transported to City Hospital, Birmingham.

“The teenager was assessed and thankfully appeared to have escaped serious injury but was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital as a precaution.

“The second car had suffered a large amount of damage to the side of the vehicle.

“There was a single occupant in the car, a woman in her 60s, who was treated for chest pain. She was then taken to City Hospital, Birmingham for further assessment.”
