A teenage girl has been airlifted to a major trauma centre after she was involved in a collision with a car.

It happened on Hodge Hill Avenue in Wollescote, Stourbridge at 8.00am this morning.

Two ambulances, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a trauma doctor on board and a senior paramedic manager were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a 16 year old girl who had suffered a potentially serious head injury. She had initially been reported to be unconscious but had started to come round while ambulance staff were treating her.

“After assessment, the doctor on the aircraft anaesthetised her at the scene before she was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. She had also been immobilised.

“The car had considerable damage. The driver, a woman, was shaken by what had happened and was taken to Russells Hall Hospital by ambulance as a precaution.”
