Four children have been treated at the scene and transported to hospital after the car they were travelling in collided with a lamppost this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Merritts Hill in Weoley, Birmingham, near to Ley Hill Recreation Ground, at 8.10am and sent two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car suffered damage to the driver’s side having left the road and travelled down a grass bank before colliding with a lamppost.

“There were five patients in total, a man who was driving the car and four young boys. All five were breathing and conscious throughout and managed to free themselves from the vehicle.

“Two of the boys were treated for injuries to their face whilst a third suffered neck injuries. Together with the fourth boy, who was taken as a precaution, they were all transported to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment.

“The driver of the car was uninjured in the incident.”
