Man Trapped For Half An Hour After Car Leaves Road

A man has been taken to a major trauma centre after the car he was in crashed into trees.

It happened at about 5.30am on Thursday morning on Stream Road in Kingswinford, between the junctions of Bromley Lane and Lesley Drive.

A rapid response vehicle from West Midlands Ambulance Service was on scene within six minutes of the 999 call and was backed up by two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT team. A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said:

“On arrival, crews found a blue car on its roof with considerable damage. There was a single occupant in the car.  The man was trapped for about 30 minutes while firefighters worked with ambulance staff to free him.

“After being immobilised, he was given a full trauma assessment before being taken to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with chest and back pain.”
