A man has died and a woman has been taken to hospital following an incident in Brierley Hill yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a bus and a pedestrian on Tennyson Street at 4.34pm and sent two ambulances, two paramedic officers, a HART paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a man in a critical condition and already receiving basic life support from a bystander.

“Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but sadly, despite everyone’s best efforts, it became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
