Wednesday 4th November 2015 – 9.30pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.

A woman was trapped in her car for an hour before eventually being cut free through the roof following a three-vehicle collision this afternoon.

Two cars and a van were involved in the incident which resulted in the woman’s car spinning nearly 360 degrees.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a call to Bromsgrove Road in Hunnington, Halesowen, at 4.20pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Strensham, in a rapid response vehicle, to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a woman who was trapped in her car which had suffered front and rear end damage.

“The woman, believed to be in her 40s, was assessed and treated for a knee injury, a suspected hip injury and a suspected fractured collarbone.

“She was immobilised prior to being cut free from the vehicle and had a pelvic binder applied as well as being given pain relief.

“Once out of the car she was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

“The second car, which had front end damage, contained a man and a woman, both thought to be in their 60s.

“The woman, a passenger, managed to free herself and was treated for minor injuries before being taken to the same hospital.

“The man, together with two men from the van who are both believed to be in their 40s, were uninjured in the incident.”
