Monday 30th July 2018 – 9.20am – Murray MacGregor.

A woman has died and two men have suffered serious injuries after a two car crash.

The incident happened at about 8.25pm on Kingsland Road in the Kingstanding area of Birmingham.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the MERIT Trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars that had suffered significant damage.

“A woman and a man were in the first vehicle.  The woman was rapidly extracted from the vehicle and resuscitation carried out along with advanced life support, but sadly it was not possible to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver in the car initially had a reduced level of consciousness and was trapped for a short period.  Firefighters removed the roof to allow ambulance staff to extricate him.

“He had suffered multiple injuries, though he regained full consciousness while being treated.  He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place before being taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“A man in his 20s from the Audi involved in the crash suffered multiple injuries.  He was anaesthetised at the scene and was immobilised before being taken on blue lights to the same hospital; the doctor and critical care paramedic travelled with the ambulance crew.

“A woman who was at the location but was not from either of the cars was also treated at the scene after becoming unwell.  She was discharged at scene.
