A collision between a car and a heavy goods vehicle on one of the main roads in Wolverhampton has left a woman with a serious head injury this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call reporting a road traffic collision between a car and a HGV on the A449 in Coven, Wolverhampton at 3.15pm (Thursday). Two ambulances and two Midlands Air Ambulances from Tatenhill and Cosford attended; one with a MERIT trauma doctor on board.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The passenger of the car, a woman in her 40s, sustained a nasty laceration to her scalp after hitting her head on the windscreen. Ambulance staff administered pain relief to the woman and dressed her wound before taking the woman to New Cross Hospital for further checks.

“The driver, a man also in his 40s, was out of the vehicle and walking around when ambulance staff arrived. Upon assessment, he was found to have sustained a chest injury. The man was given pain relief before being taken to the same hospital as a precaution.”
