Teenager dies in Solihull RTC

Claire Brown – Tuesday 24th November 2020 – 11.30am.

One teenager has sadly died, and another has been taken to hospital following an RTC in Solihull last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received calls to reports of a single car RTC on Kenilworth Road, Knowle in Solihull at 9.39pm (Monday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived at the scene to find an overturned car. The passenger, a teenage girl, had managed to self-extricate from the vehicle but the driver, a teenage boy, was trapped and in a critical condition. An off-duty doctor and bystanders had commenced CPR prior to crews arriving.

“Ambulance staff worked quickly with fire colleagues to release the teenager from the vehicle and commenced resuscitation efforts. Crews worked as a team to administer advanced life support on the boy but sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the teen and he was confirmed dead a short time later.

“The girl was assessed and was found with no apparent injuries but, due to the nature of the collision, was conveyed to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further checks.”
