Car goes over bridge parapet and into trees

Monday 3rd April 2017 – 11.02am – Murray MacGregor.

Three women have escaped serious injury despite the car they were in crashing over a bridge and coming to rest in some trees.

The incident happened at about 6.35am on Sunday morning on Ravensbank Drive, in Redditch.

Three ambulances were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived, they found a car lying on its side against a tree off the side of a bridge.

“The three women inside had managed to get out of the vehicle themselves and were back up on the roadside.

“The driver, a 35 year old woman was treated for glass to the eyes, abrasions to both legs and possible back injuries.  She was immobilised before being taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.

“The 39 year old woman in the front seat had a head injury and pain in both legs.  She was also immobilised and taken to the same hospital.

“The rear seat passenger, a 29 year old woman, had back pain and a head injury.  She was also immobilised and taken to the Alexandra Hospital.

“Considering the position the car ended up in, the potential for much more serious injuries is clear.”
