A man required advanced trauma care by the ambulance service before being taken to hospital after being involved in a single car road traffic collision in Walsall in the early hours of today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 3.48am this morning (Monday) to the junction of Upper Rushall Street and Town Hall, Walsall. Two paramedic officers, an ambulance crew and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived on scene they found a car which had left the road and collided with a fence. The driver, a man, was out of the vehicle and in a ditch. The team of ambulance staff assessed the man and found he had sustained serious injuries and was in a critical condition. They commenced advanced trauma care whilst working closely with fire colleagues to extricate the man rapidly from the ditch.
“Once stabilised, the man was conveyed on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency care.”
