Fatal RTC in Tamworth

Jamie Arrowsmith – Wednesday 25th May 2022 – 8am.

A man has died and three other patients were taken to hospital following a multi-vehicle RTC in Tamworth yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of an RTC involving a lorry and a number of cars at the junction of the A5 and the A453 Sutton Road, near Mile Oak, at 5.16pm. Three ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Staffordshire attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered a man who was in a critical condition from one of the cars. Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but sadly, despite their best efforts, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A second man, from the same car, had to be cut free with assistance from fire service colleagues. He was treated for potentially serious injuries and taken to Walsall Manor Hospital by land ambulance.

“Two female patients from another car were both treated for injuries not believed to be serious before being taken to Good Hope Hospital on the same land ambulance as a precaution.

“The lorry driver, a man, was assessed for minor injuries and discharged at the scene.”
