Two people suffered serious injuries and were left trapped in their car following a collision with a lamppost last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Dudley Port in Tipton shortly after 11.35pm and sent two ambulances and a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle to the scene. The Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Cosford also attended in a rapid response vehicle.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Two patients were left trapped in the car following the collision, having to be cut free by the fire service.

“Crews were told the car also collided with a post box after crashing into the lamppost.

“The driver, a woman teenager, was treated for a suspected fractured jaw at the scene before being transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

“The passenger, a man believed to be in his 20s, was treated for a serious head injury and back pain before being taken to the same hospital.”



    1. Hi Dave…unfortunately, once we hand over the care of the patient to the hospital we don’t generally hear any more so i am sorry, we simply don’t know.
