A pedestrian who collided with a van was dragged from underneath it by bystanders earlier this evening.

The man, thought to be in his 70s, suffered a serious leg injury in the incident.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Oaklands Road and Lea Road in Wolverhampton just before 4.40pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Cosford in a rapid response vehicle to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a man who had been dragged from underneath the van following a collision between the two.

“He was treated for a serious leg injury but thankfully appeared to have escaped any other injuries and remained breathing and conscious throughout.

“He had suffered significant cuts to his legs and once these were treated and dressed, he was immobilised and transported to New Cross Hospital.”
