Jamie Arrowsmith – Wednesday 26th February 2020 – 9.20am.

Two women, one of whom suffered serious injuries, were treated by ambulance staff and taken to hospital following a two-car RTC last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Wolverhampton Road, Kingswinford at 6.31pm and sent two ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival we discovered two patients, both women, following a two-car collision.

“One of the women was trapped inside her vehicle and had to be rescued with assistance from the fire service. Ambulance staff carefully monitored her condition throughout the process, as she was freed from the car.

“She then received treatment for serious injuries before being transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. The MERIT trauma doctor travelled with the patient to help continue treatment enroute to hospital.

“The second woman, who was already out of the vehicle on arrival of ambulance staff, was treated for minor injuries and taken to Russell’s Hall Hospital as a precaution.”
