A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Upon arrival, crews discovered two patients, both men.

“One of them was out of his vehicle and receiving treatment from the police on our arrival.

“Ambulance staff quickly discovered he was in a serious condition and administered specialist trauma care at the scene before transporting the man to Queen Elizabeth Hospital on blue lights and sirens.

“The second patient was assisted out of his car by ambulance staff. He was treated for injuries not believed to be serious and taken to Heartlands Hospital under normal road conditions.
