A man has died and two people have been taken to hospital following a two-car RTC in the early hours of this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Heath Road at 3.42am and sent three ambulances, two paramedic officers and a BASICS doctor to the scene. The first resource arrived on scene two minutes after the call.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered four patients, one of whom, a man who was the driver of one of the cars, was in a critical condition.

“Ambulance staff administered advanced life support but sadly, despite their best efforts, it became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A teenage male was treated for serious injuries before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital whilst a teenage girl was treated for injuries not believed to be serious. She was then taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.

“The driver of the second car, a man, was assessed and discharged at the scene.”
