West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls to reports of a collision involving a van and a single-decker bus outside The Cock Inn, Dudley Road in Rowley Regis at 5.01pm last night (Thursday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers, HART paramedics, a BASICS emergency doctor and a Critical Care Car from the Midlands Air Ambulance attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find a serious collision involving a van and a single-decker bus. The van driver, a man, was in a critical condition. Ambulance staff began administering emergency treatment to the man whilst working closely with fire colleagues on scene.
“The team of medics worked to administer advanced life support to the man but sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save him, and he was confirmed dead on scene a short time later.
“Two passengers from the bus, an elderly man and woman, suffered minor injuries and were taken to Russells Hall Hospital for further checks. The bus driver was assessed on scene but didn’t require hospital treatment.”
