A car smashed through a small wall and a fence following a two car collision tonight.
There were three patients in that car and a further two in a second which remained on the carriageway. From the second car, one patient had to be rescued through the roof as a result of becoming trapped in the incident.
The crash took place at the junction of Howard Road and Hazelhurst Road in Kings Heath, Birmingham, at 6.15pm.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told that the collision between the cars caused one of them to leave the road, travelling through a wall and a fence in the process.
“From that car, three men in their 30s were assessed by ambulance staff, two of whom were discharged on scene with minor injuries.
“The driver was treated for neck and back injuries, immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further treatment.
“There were two more men in the second car, again both in their 30s. The driver was assisted out of the car after he briefly lost consciousness whilst the passenger had to be cut free through the roof with the assistance of the fire service.
“The man who was cut free was also immobilised and treated for neck and back pain before they were both transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, a rapid response paramedic and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.
