A man has died following a two-car collision this morning, despite the best efforts of ambulance staff.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Lanchester Way and the A452 in Castle Bromwich at 8.15am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two patients, both men, following the collision.
“One of the men was still inside his car and after ambulance staff quickly discovered he had suffered serious injuries in the incident, he was rapidly freed from his vehicle and treatment began immediately.
“Specialist trauma care was administered, however, sadly it became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The second man, who was from the other car, was assessed and treated for minor injuries at the scene before being transported to Heartlands Hospital.”
