Three teenagers have been treated by ambulance staff and taken to hospital after a two-car collision last night which caused one of the vehicles to overturn.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Saltwells Road in Dudley just after 11.45pm and sent three ambulances, a rapid response paramedic, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told that a teenage girl, who was out of the car on their arrival, had initially suffered a reduced level of consciousness.

“She was treated for serious chest, pelvic, arm and abdominal injuries, immobilised and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

“A second teenage girl had suffered a suspected wrist fracture and a shoulder injury and was taken to the same hospital.

“A teenage boy, who was walking around on arrival of ambulance staff, was treated for shoulder and knee injuries and taken to Russells Hall Hospital.”
