A man has sadly died and two others have been assessed by ambulance staff following a road traffic collision in Birmingham this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of an RTC involving a car and a van at the junction of Mayfield Road and Fox Hollies Road, Acocks Green at 8.50am today (Thursday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers, a critical care paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor and paramedic on board attended the scene.
