4 vehicles, 10 patients, no injuries

Thursday 1st October 2015 – 3.00pm – Claire Brown.

A four vehicle collision which left one van on its side looked like it was going to be a bad one when ambulance staff arrived, thankfully it wasn’t.

The collision involving three cars and a van happened on the Stourbridge Road just at the turning for Wombourne in Wolverhampton at 1.00pm this afternoon (Thursday).

A paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and an ambulance attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When you see a vehicle on its side you immediately think the worst.

“Thankfully, the driver of the overturned van had managed to get out of the vehicle and the nine occupants of the three other cars involved were all described as ‘walking wounded’ when ambulance staff arrived.

“The team of ambulance staff assessed all 10 patients at the roadside, three of which were young children.

“Of those assessed, a man in his 30s sustained minor neck pain and two women were suffering from the effects of shock. Thankfully, no one needed further treatment in hospital and all 10 patients were discharged on scene.”
