A teenager has died and three further patients were treated and taken to hospital following a road traffic collision in Aldridge on Friday night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a single vehicle RTC at the junction of Winterley Lane and Daw End Lane at 11.58pm. Four ambulances, three paramedic officers, a MERIT trauma doctor and the West Midlands Care Team attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival we discovered a car that had suffered significant damage and four patients.

“One of whom, a teenage male, was found to be in a critical condition and receiving basic life support from police colleagues. Ambulance staff began administering advanced life support but sadly, despite everyone’s best efforts, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A second teenage male and a man, were treated for potentially serious injuries before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

“The fourth patient, a man, was treated for injuries not believed to be serious and was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.”
