Three people have been injured, one seriously after an RTC last night.

The crash occurred on the Wolverhampton Road, near to Himley Cricket Club at just after 6pm.  Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Trusts MERIT team attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a two vehicle RTC with one vehicle having rolled over in the crash.

“The driver of the car that rolled over, a man believed to be in his 40’s, had suffered multiple lacerations in the crash and also a reduced level of consciousness.  The man received emergency treatment at the scene from medics and with the assistance of the fire service was removed from the vehicle.  He was trapped for around 30 minutes.

“Following further treatment at the scene, the man was transferred by ambulance to Russells Hall Hospital for further treatment.

“A woman travelling in the same car, believed to be in her 30’s, had managed to free herself from the overturned vehicle, and received treatment for minor lacerations to her hands.  She also travelled to the same hospital for further treatment.

“The man driving the second vehicle, believed to be in his 40’s, received treatment at the scene for chest and wrist injuries.  Following treatment he was also transferred by ambulance to Russells Hall Hospital for further treatment.

“All emergency services on scene worked seamlessly together to ensure the patients received the best treatment as quickly and safely as possible.”
