Tuesday 26th July 2016 – 8.51am – Murray MacGregor.

A pedestrian has been anaesthetised at the scene of collision with a car after he suffered very serious injuries.

It happened outside Kwik-fit in Washwood Heath Road in the Ward End area of Birmingham at just after 7.00pm last night (Monday).

An ambulance was on scene within six minutes of the first of several 999 calls.  It was backed up by a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT trauma doctor.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a man who had suffered multiple injuries.  The front of the car was badly damaged.

“Ambulance staff worked with the doctor to stabilise the man’s condition before he was anaesthetised at the scene.  He was then taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham where medics were on standby to receive him.

“The car driver was uninjured.”
