A man has died following a two-car RTC this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Houndsfield Lane, Hollywood, near to the Worcestershire and Birmingham border at 7.42am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had suffered significant damage and three patients, all male.

“One of the patients was trapped inside his vehicle and ambulance staff worked with emergency services partners to provide advanced life support whilst he was being freed.

“Treatment continued once the patient was out of the car 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.

“The remaining two patients were assessed and treated for minor injuries before being discharged at the scene.”
