The crash at the junction of Coventry Road and Berkeley Road in Yardley happened at about 7.30pm on Tuesday evening.
An ambulance was on scene within 5 minutes of the call and was backed up by a second ambulance and a paramedic area support officer.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crew found two cars that had collided head on and a third car that had hit railing around a traffic island.
“There were two men in their 20s in the car that had hit the traffic island. One, complained of feeling dizzy initially and also had a fractured collar bone. Ambulance staff worked with firefighters as the roof was removed and the man was extracted onto a spinal board. The front seat passenger had a suspected fracture to his right hand. Both were taken to Heartlands Hospital.
“There was a woman in her 20s in a BMW. She was complaining of spinal tenderness and was also immobilised before being taken to the same hospital.
“A man estimated to be 40s was in an Audi. He got out of the car himself and after a check-up for minor facial injuries from the airbag, was discharged on scene.”
