A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival at the scene, crews were told that the stationary parked car, which had suffered significant front end damage, had been moved 15m following the collision.

“The patient’s car had also suffered serious front end damage whilst a third vehicle, which was also stationary, was left with rear end damage.

“The patient, a woman in her 40s, had managed to get herself out of her car prior to the arrival of ambulance staff.

“She was treated for an arm injury and taken to Heartlands Hospital for further assessment.

“She appears to have been extremely fortunate not to have suffered more serious injuries given the nature of the incident and the damage suffered to the cars involved.”
