Woman trapped for over an hour following a serious RTC on Wolverhampton Road in Oldbury.
Emergency services were called to Wolverhampton Road between Birchley Island and Titford Road in Oldbury, just before 1AM this morning (21/09), to reports of a road traffic collision.
On arrival, Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics, discovered two cars which had been involved in a collision; the engine of one of the cars had ended up 50 metres away.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Two cars had been involved in a significant collision; the engine of one of the cars had ended up 50 metres away.
The driver of this car, a 27-year-old woman, was knocked out and had sustained a serious head injury and fractures to her leg and pelvis. Medics administered advanced analgesia to help manage her pain whilst the fire service worked to extricate her.
After just over 60 minutes, the woman was released from the badly damaged car and ambulance staff immobilised her onto a neck collar, scoop stretcher and pelvic splint before being alerted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency trauma care.
The four occupants of the second car, four men, had self-extricated from the vehicle which had caught fire prior to emergency services arrival.
All four men were walking wounded and had sustained less serious injuries ranging from ankle and abdominal injuries to facial lacerations and minor soft tissue damage. Upon assessment by ambulance staff, two required immobilisation onto a spinal board before all four men were taken to Sandwell Hospital as a precaution.”
The road remains whilst officers from the WMP collision unit investigate the incident and recover the vehicles.
Please call WMP on 101 if you have ANY information that may help the investigation.
