A car driver has died following a road traffic collision this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a car and a lamppost at the junction of Bridle Lane and Chester Road in Streetly, Birmingham shortly before 3.10pm and sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find the car driver, a man, in cardiac arrest.
“An off duty nurse and the fire service had already started giving the man CPR before ambulance staff took over.
“They administered advanced life support and continued treatment en-route to the hospital, with two firefighters also travelling on the ambulance to offer further assistance.
“However, unfortunately shortly after arrival at Good Hope Hospital it became evident that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased.”
