Two children taken to paediatric major trauma centre

Murray MacGregor – Thursday 15th April 2021 – 10.05am.

Two children have been taken on blue lights to the region’s paediatric major trauma centre after a two car collision that left six people hurt.

The incident happened at just before 10.00pm last night, Wednesday, on Lichfield Road, just after the canal bridge and close to the junction with Lewis Grove in Wolverhampton.

Three ambulances, two paramedic officers and the MERIT Trauma Doctor and Critical Care Paramedic were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found two cars that had suffered significant damage.

“There were four people in the first car, two adults and two children.  A teenage boy had suffered the most significant injuries.  He was treated at the scene before being taken on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with the doctor travelling with the crew. 

“A younger boy also suffered potentially serious injuries and was taken to the same hospital with the critical care paramedic travelling with the second ambulance.  The two adults in the car, a man and a woman, were assessed at the scene but had only minor injuries.

“There were two women in the other car.  Both were treated for less serious injuries but were taken to New Cross Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”

      1. Unfortunately Tarnia, once we hand over the patient at hospital we have no further interaction with the patients, so I’m sorry, but we just don’t know.
