Foggy - Amb + RRV at QEHB

Thursday 24th December 2015 – 9.00am – Claire Brown.

A collision involving three cars in the early hours left three men requiring a trip to A&E.

The incident happened on the Wolverhampton Road in Oldbury near to Causeway Green Road shortly before 1.00am (Thursday). Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a community paramedic attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “All three cars had sustained damage but it was the occupants of one car that needed treatment by ambulance staff.

“The driver and two passengers from this car had to be extricated from the wreck with help from the fire service. A third passenger had already got out of the car upon our arrival.

“One passenger, a man in his 40s, received the brunt of the injuries having suffered a nasty cut to his head and a broken arm. He was given pain relief and his head wound was dressed before he was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“Upon assessment ambulance staff found that the driver, a man, had neck and back pain and he too was immobilised before being taken to Sandwell Hospital along with the other passenger, a man, who had minor injuries.

“The occupants of the other two cars involved were uninjured.”
