Three adults and two children required medical attention at the scene of a two-car road traffic collision this morning before being transported to hospital.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Gospel End Street in Dudley at 9.40am and sent three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two cars that had suffered significant damage in the collision.

“There were six patients in total, two men travelling in one of the cars and two women and two children who were travelling in the other.

“One of the men, who remained conscious throughout, received treatment for a head injury before being transported to New Cross Hospital. The other man was uninjured.

“The driver of the second car, a woman thought to be in her 20s, was treated for a suspected broken wrist and given pain relief.

“The passenger, also a woman in her 20s, had suffered cuts to her head in the collision for which she also received treatment at the scene.

“The two children, both young boys, were assessed and treated for chest pain before all four of them were taken to Russells Hall Hospital.”
