Monday 5th March 2018 – 1.05pm – Murray MacGregor.
Six patients have been treated, one for critical injuries after a two-car crash on a dual carriageway.
The crash happened on the A448 Bromsgrove Highway near Redditch at about 6.45pm on Sunday evening.
An ambulance came across the crash shortly after it had happened. Tow further ambulances, two paramedic officers, a consultant paramedic and the MERIT Trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When staff arrived they found two cars with considerable damage.
“Three children from the first car were assessed at the scene. An 11-year-old boy was initially trapped. Due to his condition, he was anaesthetised at the scene before being taken on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with the doctor travelling with the crew.
“A nine-year-old boy was taken to the same hospital on blue lights with the consultant paramedic travelling with the crew. He had neck and wrist injuries.
“A girl of about 13 was unhurt. The man who had been driving the car was assessed but was planning to go to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch himself.
“A six-year-old boy in the second car and the 36-year-old woman who had been driving were also assessed by ambulance staff. They planned to go to Worcestershire Royal Hospital with family.”
