Lorry collides with pushchair in Dudley

Monday 20th November 2017 – 5.00pm – Claire Brown.

When call assessors in our control room received 999 calls reporting a collision between a lorry and a pushchair, they feared the worst.

The incident happened near to Cousins on the A461 Duncan Edwards Way in Dudley shortly after 2.30pm today (Monday). An ambulance and a paramedic officer were immediately sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When the ambulance crew arrived on scene, they found a woman with her two-year-old girl who had reportedly been involved in a collision with a lorry.

“The woman told crews that her daughter, who was strapped into a pushchair at the time, had initially been unresponsive but was alert and understandably distressed when ambulance staff arrived. They assessed the girl in the back of the ambulance and found she had sustained a bump to her head. Whilst ambulance staff found no other apparent injuries, they took the decision to convey the girl to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with her mum for further checks due to the nature of the collision.”
