Two children have died and a woman has been injured after a two car crash.
The tragic incident happened at the junction of Lawnswood Avenue and Birmingham New Road in the Ettingshall area of Wolverhampton at around 8.45pm last night (Thursday).
An ambulance arrived on scene five minutes after the initial 999 call and was backed up by a second ambulance, the MERIT Trauma doctor and critical care paramedic and two paramedic officers.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival ambulance staff found a number of members of the public tending to those involved in the crash.
“There were three patients who all came from the same car. Unfortunately, it soon became apparent that nothing could be done to save the two young boys who had been badly hurt and they were confirmed dead at the scene.
“A woman who had been driving the car was assessed and treated at the scene by ambulance staff before being taken to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. Her injuries are not life threatening.
“There were no other patients.”
