Metal railings save car from hitting pub in Stourbridge


Monday 18th April 2016 – 10.40am – Claire Brown.

A road traffic collision in Stourbridge could have been so much worse last night but metal railings did their job.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to outside The Chequers Inn on the Stourbridge Ring Road in Stourbridge at 10.20pm (Sunday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic and a paramedic area support officer attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a car which had collided with metal railings at the side of the ring road.

“The three occupants in the car, three young men, were checked over by ambulance staff. Two of the men suffered no apparent injuries whilst the third was given treatment on scene for an arm injury and a suspected minor head injury. He was taken to Russells Hall Hospital for further care.

“Not only were the three men lucky not to have suffered serious injuries but it was extremely fortunate that the car was stopped by the metal railings in-front of the pub otherwise it could have been a completely different incident.”
