A man has died and three other people were injured following a two car road traffic collision in Birmingham yesterday.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a serious collision on Brookvale Road, Witton at 8.15am on Sunday morning. Four ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill and the Critical Care Car from The Air Ambulance Service with a doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found two cars which had been involved in a serious collision with four patients requiring treatment. One man was in cardiac arrest and quickly received advanced life support on scene by ambulance staff and the doctor. Sadly, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on the scene.
“A 17-year-old boy and a 58-year-old man received advanced trauma care by ambulance staff and the medic after suffering serious injuries in the collision. Both were given pain relief and immobilised by the team before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency care.
“A 16-year-old girl was assessed and treated at the scene for less serious injuries before being taken to the same hospital.”
