A teenage boy is in an extremely serious condition following a road traffic collision with a car last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Bandywood Road and Wandsworth Road in Birmingham at 7.20pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a 15-year-old boy who had suffered numerous serious injuries and was in cardiac arrest.

“Bystanders, including the police, had already started CPR which ambulance staff took over as well as administering advanced life support.

“Thankfully they were able to restart the boy’s heart before quickly transferring him to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further treatment.

“Unfortunately, on arrival at hospital, the boy’s condition was still described as very serious.”
