Despite teamwork at the scene, a pedestrian sadly died in the Black Country last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of an RTC at the junction of Marriot Road and Cradley Road in Netherton, Dudley at 11.45pm (Friday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and medics from the West Midlands Central Accident Resuscitation Emergency (CARE) Team attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found passers-by, who had found the man in the road, performing excellent CPR. The man had sustained multiple injuries and ambulance staff quickly took over resuscitation efforts with help from police.

“Advanced life support continued at the roadside but sadly, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.”
