Jamie Arrowsmith – Tuesday 18th February 2020 – 10.45am.

Two men and a woman, who had to be freed from their cars, were treated at the scene of a serious RTC by ambulance staff before being taken to hospital last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a two-car collision on Bromford Road in Hodge Hill, Birmingham at 8.33pm and sent three ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT Trauma Doctor to the scene.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a total of three patients following a two-car collision, all of whom had to be freed from their vehicles with help from colleagues from the fire service.

“The drivers of both cars, both men, were treated for serious injuries. One of them was then taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, whilst the other was transported to Heartlands Hospital. The doctor and critical care paramedic from the MERIT team travelled individually with the patients to help continue treatment en-route to hospital.

“The third patient, a woman, was treated for potentially serious injuries and also taken to Heartlands Hospital.”
