A pedestrian has been taken on blue lights by ambulance to a major trauma centre after he was involved in a collision with a car.

The incident happened outside Farmfoods on Hazelwell Street in Birmingham at just after 6.30am this morning (Thursday).

A non-emergency Patient Transport Service ambulance crew came across the scene shortly after it had happened; they started to provide care and immobilised the man until the emergency ambulance arrived shortly afterwards.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car had suffered damage to the windscreen and also the ‘A’ pillar.

“The man, who was in his 50s, had head and leg injuries.  He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place before he was taken on blue lights to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“The car driver wasn’t injured.”
