A man has suffered serious head, arm and leg injuries following a collision between his car and street furniture tonight.

The man, thought to be in his 30s, had been part ejected from his car in the collision with a signpost.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called just before 10pm to Hagley Road in Edgbaston, Birmingham, opposite Morrisons supermarket. An ambulance, a rapid response paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car had suffered significant damage in the collision and the man, who was unconscious, was hanging half out of it on arrival.

“In order to completely free him parts of the interior had to be cut away.

“It quickly became apparent he had suffered multiple serious injuries. As well as a significant head injury he also had fractures to both of his arms and a leg.

“He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder applied before quickly being transport to the nearby Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

“Sadly, the man’s injuries are thought to be extremely serious.

“It is not believed that there were any other vehicles involved in the incident.”
