An elderly woman has suffered a potentially serious head injury after a collision with a car.

It happened at the junction of Roman Court and Watling Street in the Wilnecote area of Tamworth at 12.30pm on Tuesday afternoon.

Two community first responders from the Tamworth scheme were first on scene and were backed up by an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found the 78 year old woman with a potentially serious head injury.  Whilst fully conscious, she wasn’t clear on what had happened.

“Her condition was stabilised on scene and she was immobilised as a precaution due to the nature of the injury.

“She was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham – the ASO travelled with the crew due to the woman’s condition.

“The man driving the car was shaken but unhurt.”
