Saturday 14th November 2015 – 8.30am – John Hawker.


Three people have been injured, one seriously following an RTC in Birmingham last night.

The crash occurred near the junction of Bristol Road and Cob Lane, Bourneville at around 8.25pm.  Four ambulances, two rapid response vehicles, a paramedic officer and the Trusts CARE  team attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Ambulance crews on route to work at the City Centre Treatment Unit came across the three vehicle crash and started treating patients at the scene.

“A woman driving one car suffered multiple serious injuries in the crash and received emergency treatment by medics whilst being rapidly extricated from the vehicle.

“Due to the nature of the woman’s injuries, she was anaesthetised at the scene by medics and was then transferred by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Major Trauma Unit for further emergency treatment.  The hospital were awaiting the woman’s arrival.

“Unfortunately, the woman’s injuries were very serious.

“The drivers of the two other cars both suffered injuries and were treated at the scene by medics.  The man suffered a head laceration and a wrist injury and the woman suffered a laceration to her back.

“Following treatment both were transferred to the same hospital by ambulance for further treatment.

“All emergency service staff worked seamlessly together at a difficult incident to ensure all patients received the best treatment as quickly and safely as possible.”
