A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The woman who is in her thirties had broken both her legs, had a broken knee and a suspected chest injury. She was trapped in her car for around 45 minutes and was freed with the help of the fire service who cut off its roof.

“She was immobilised onto a spinal board and given pain relief before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“An 18 month old boy who was in the same car appeared to have nothing more than a cut lip, but because of the high level of damage done to both cars in the collision, he was taken to the Alexandra Hospital as a precaution.

“A woman in her twenties who was driving the other car had managed to herself get out of her vehicle. She had a minor head wound but again was taken to the Alexandra Hospital as a precaution.”
