Two men have been injured after a two vehicle collision left one van on its side in Kingsbury this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the Kingsbury Road, near to the Oil Terminal at 6.45am today (Friday). Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a van on its side and a car with significant damage following a collision. The van driver, a man in his 50s, was trapped in the vehicle due to the position it had landed. Upon assessment ambulance staff found he had sustained neck and pelvic pain and was given pain relief before the fire service worked around them to release the man from the van. Once extricated, he was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to Heartlands Hospital for further care.
“The car driver, a man believed to be in his 40s, was described as ‘walking wounded’ and had suffered a hand injury and general aches and pains. He was treated by ambulance staff before being taken by land ambulance to George Eliot Hospital as a precaution.”
