Four teenagers, one of whom was knocked unconscious, have been treated for a variety of injuries following a collision between a car and a tree this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Station Road and the A4040 in Alum Rock, Birmingham, shortly before 8.15am and sent four ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car that had suffered significant damage following a collision with a tree.

“There were four patients, two of whom had managed to free themselves from the vehicle whilst the two in the back of the car had to be assisted out.

“From the back of the car, a 17-year old man was treated for a head injury having been knocked unconscious. He was immobilised and taken to Heartlands Hospital.

“Also in the back was a 15-year-old boy who was treated by crews for a leg fracture and suspected pelvic injuries. He was immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

“The driver, a 17-year-old man, was taken to Heartlands Hospital after receiving treatment for neck and back injuries.

“Finally, the front seat passenger, a 16-year-old girl, was treated for injuries to her head and face and also taken to Heartlands Hospital.”
