A pedestrian has sadly died following a road traffic collision in Birmingham last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls reporting a collision involving a car and a pedestrian in Spring Hill, Winson Green, Birmingham at 6.51pm yesterday (Monday). Three ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The first ambulance crew arrived to find an off duty nurse administering CPR to a man, the pedestrian, who had reportedly been in collision with a car. Police officers rendered aid to assist with efforts whilst the team of ambulance staff administered advanced life support to the man at the scene.
