Six treated after Walsall crash

A total of six people were assessed and treated by ambulance staff in Walsall after a crash yesterday.

It happened at the junction of Wednesbury Road and Corporation Street West shortly before 11.00am. A total of three ambulances, two paramedic officers and the aircrews of two Midlands Air Ambulances, who responded in cars, were sent to the scene. A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said:

“On arrival at the scene, there were a number of damaged vehicles. One had collided with a lamppost and a wall. A 20-year-old man suffered a head injury but didn’t wish to be immobilised and was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital by ambulance.

"A 16-year-old girl had suffered multiple injuries. After treatment at the scene, she too was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital and a second man had suffered minor injuries and was left with police."

A second car had suffered significant damage that resulted in the driver being trapped for around an hour. The woman in her 40s was extricated with the help of firefighters. She had suffered multiple injuries and was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

A 3-year-old girl, who was in a car set, escaped serious injury and was assessed at the scene and discharged. The final patient was a middle-aged man who was a pedestrian. He suffered a minor leg injury and was also taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.
