Two people have been injured and taken to hospital after a car collided with a stationary car and a house last night (Tuesday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Field Road in Bloxwich shortly before 11.40pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two patients, both of whom were travelling in the car.

“The rear seat passenger, a man in his 20s, had managed to get himself out of the vehicle.

“Following assessment from ambulance staff, he was treated for serious chest injuries as well as cuts to his arm.

“He was given pain relief and taken on alert to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham where a trauma team were awaiting his arrival. The MERIT doctor travelled with the patient to continue treatment en-route.

“The driver, a man in his 20s, was found to be unresponsive by emergency services colleagues who had freed him from the vehicle and rapidly started treating him.

“The man was still unresponsive on arrival of ambulance staff who treated him for a head injury.

“He was immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and transported to Walsall Manor Hospital on blue lights and sirens.”
