Two people have been treated by ambulance staff and taken to hospital following a collision between a bus and a van this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on Lode Lane, Solihull, at 10.26am and sent two ambulances, a senior paramedic, a paramedic officer, two BASICS doctors and the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a bus and a van that had been in collision, both of which had front end damage.
“There were two patients from the van, one of whom, a man, was trapped as a result of his injuries.
“Ambulance staff assessed him and then worked closely with the fire service to ensure he was safely cut free.
“Once out, he received further treatment for his injuries, before being taken to Heartlands Hospital.
“The passenger in the van, a teenage male, was also taken to Heartlands Hospital. Neither of the patients are believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries.
“There were no patients requiring assessment from ambulance staff who had been travelling on the bus.”
