Thursday 22nd October 2015 – 7.15pm – Murray MacGregor.

Two people have been injured after the car they were in went through a large metal fence, down an embankment and into a tree.

The crash happened just at the end of the railway bridge on Wednesbury Road in Walsall at about 2.45am this morning (Thursday).

Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car that had suffered very significant damage, especially to the passenger side.

“Both occupants, who were estimated to be in their 30s, had managed to get out, though the woman, who was the front seat passenger, had a reduced level of consciousness.

“The woman had a nasty laceration to her face and a leg injury. After treatment at the scene, she was taken to the Major Trauma Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with the doctor travelling with the crew. She was expected to need surgery for the facial injury.

“The man driving was less serious. He was complaining of back pain and was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital. Both patients were immobilised using neck collars and spinal boards.”
