There was a car accident this morning on the Pelsall Road, Brownhills, just on the east side of Highbridge near the Council Depot – formerly the Edward Rose Plant.
A police car left the road while responding to a call at around 4:00am, rolled down the embankment and hit a palisade fence. The two officers inside the vehicle suffered serious, but not life threatening injuries and were rushed to hospital. No other vehicles were involved.
The Pelsall Road was closed for some time afterward.
