Four occupants of a car were extremely lucky to avoid serious injury overnight when their car rolled and came to rest on its roof in a field, approximately 100m after leaving the road.

Having left the road, the car is believed to have clipped a lamppost and crashed through some bushes before rolling a number of times into the field.

The incident took place in Kitchen Lane, Wolverhampton shortly before 1.10am.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told the vehicle rolled over, end to end, numerous times before finally coming to rest.

“It is therefore quite incredible that all four appear to have avoided serious injuries.

“All of the occupants were out of the vehicle on our arrival, with one of the four having been helped out by the other occupants.

“There were two men and two women. One of the men, believed to be in his 20s, was treated for neck and back pain, immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and taken to New Cross Hospital.

“The other man, thought to be in his 30s, and two women, both believed to be in their 20s, were all treated for minor injuries and also taken to New Cross Hospital. One of the women was immobilised as a precaution.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the West Midlands CARE team to the scene.
