Saturday 20th February 2016 – 7.20pm – Murray MacGregor.

A man has suffered potentially serious head injuries after a collision with a double decker bus in the centre of Birmingham.

The incident happened at about 1.20pm outside Walkabout on Broad Street.

An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the West Midlands Care Team car were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The windscreen of the bus had been cracked and the 41 year old man was suffering from a head injury.

“On arrival, ambulance staff found an off duty radiographer and a first aider treating the man. They were told that he’d been dragged along the road a short distance.

“Due to his ‘disorientated’ state, it was difficult to accurately assess his condition so crews acted on a worst case scenario. He was immobilised and taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“The bus driver was understandably upset by what had happened. He was assessed at the scene, but he didn’t require hospital treatment.”
