Four people are in hospital after a multi-vehicle collision in Dudley last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 6.50pm on Thursday to Birmingham New Road and sent three ambulances, two paramedic officers, a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) paramedic, a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman says: “On arrival, crews found three cars had been involved in a collision.
“In the first car, which had ended up on its side, there were three patients: two women and a man. Both female patients, who were passengers, were treated by ambulance staff for injuries not believed to be serious before being conveyed to Sandwell Hospital for further treatment.
“The driver, a man, was assessed by medics but was not injured and so was given self-care advice and discharged at the scene.
“The male driver of the second car was treated for injuries not believed to be serious and also taken to Sandwell Hospital for further treatment.
“The female passenger of the same car did not wish to be assessed by ambulance crews.
“The male driver of the third car was assessed by medics but was not injured and so was given self-care advice and discharged at the scene.”
