Woman dies in Penn RTC

Claire Brown – Monday 11th November 2019 – 9.00am.

A woman has died in a road traffic collision in Wolverhampton last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called by the police to reports of a two car RTC at the junction of Coalway Road, Penn Road and Goldthorn Hill in Penn at 8.36pm (Sunday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived to find a serious RTC involving two cars. One driver, a woman, was in a critical condition being cared for by police officers. Ambulance staff worked as a team to rapidly remove her from the car to commence advanced life support on scene before she was taken on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead a short time later at hospital.

“The driver of the second car, a man, declined ambulance assessment and was discharged on scene.”
