Lucky escape after crash sees Porsche hit nursery wall

Wednesday 9th August 2017 – 1.55pm – Murray MacGregor.

Ambulance staff who attended a crash earlier say considering the level of damage to the vehicles and the wall of a nursery, it is more than fortunate that no-one was seriously hurt.

The collision happened outside Happy Days Nursery in Hagley Road West, in the Quinton area of Birmingham at about 10.45am this morning (Wednesday).

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crew arrived they found a white panel van was significant damage to the front passenger side.  Close by a Porsche Cayenne was resting against the wall of the nursery and a second panel van, which was parked.  It had very substantial front end damage.

“The driver of the first van, a 63-year-old man, was complaining of rib and seatbelt pain.  He had been able to get out of vehicle himself.  After an assessment and pain relief at the scene, he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham as a precaution.

“The 22-year-old man driving the Porsche had some minor seatbelt pain.  He didn’t want pain relief or to go to hospital so was discharged with advice.

“There were no casualties within the nursery.
