Saturday 28th November 2015 – 7.45pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.


An incredible dose of good fortune ensured no one suffered any injuries when a car went through the window of a hairdressers earlier today.

The incident happened on Lawnswood Road in Wordsley, Stourbridge, shortly before 11.50am and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Quite how no one suffered any injuries in this incident is not far short of a miracle.

“The car came to rest almost completely in the hairdressers which had a number of people inside at the time.

“Thankfully, none of them were caught up in the incident.

“The driver of the car, an elderly woman, managed to free herself from the vehicle and following assessment from ambulance crews she was discharged at the scene.

“There are a number of shops nearby and everyone deserves credit for pulling together to look after those involved prior to the arrival of emergency services.”
