A road traffic collision just before midnight last night sadly claimed the lives of two men.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Brettell Lane in Brierley Hill at 11.59pm (Wednesday) to reports of a collision between a car and a wall. Two ambulances, a community paramedic, a MERIT trauma doctor and advanced paramedic attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly, upon arrival, it quickly became apparent to ambulance staff that nothing could be done to save one man in the car and he was confirmed dead.
“The second occupant, a man, sustained multiple serious injuries and was trapped. Once extricated from the car, his condition rapidly deteriorated at the roadside and despite advanced life support by the team of ambulance staff the man couldn’t be saved and he was also confirmed dead.”
