That was ‘more than lucky’ for the drivers of two high powered cars

Monday 28th December 2015 – 4.40pm – Murray MacGregor.

The drivers of two high powered cars have been ‘more than lucky’ after escaping serious injury despite a collision that left one car in a hedge and the other with substantial front end damage.

The crash at the junction of the A449 and Doctors Lane in Kingswinford happened at about 2.50pm on Monday afternoon.

An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene after a number of calls about the collision.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a BMW in a hedge surrounded by brambles. A Porsche 911 was in the middle of the southbound carriageway with front driver’s side damage.

“Thankfully, both men had managed to get out of their respective cars.

“The 29 year old BMW driver was shaken but otherwise unhurt. The 35 year old Porsche driver had a burn to his right forearm but said he didn’t want to go to hospital to have it assessed further.

“Thankfully, the inherent strength of modern cars and the wearing of seatbelts has ensured both men have escaped with almost no injury.”
