It seems that the accident occurred near the junction of High Street and Ogley Road, although detail from social media is a little confused. Imagery from Bing! Maps.

There’s been some interest in a car accident that occurred on Saturday afternoon in Brownhills – official detail is scant and somewhat contradictory, but yesterday evening I spotted this press release from West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS).

They posted on their blog:

A man has escaped serious injury following a collision that badly damaged the car he was driving.

It happened in High Street, Brownhills. West Midlands Ambulance Service was called shortly before 3.30pm Saturday (19th July 2014).

An ambulance crew and a paramedic area support officer attended. The crew of the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford also attended by rapid response vehicle – the helicopter was unable to fly during yesterday’s stormy weather.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: ‘There was significant damage to the car. It’s driver, however, just had marks from his seatbelt. One of the crew at the scene remarked at how fortunate he was not to have been more seriously injured.

‘Following assessment at the scene, he was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.’

If you witnessed the accident, you are requested to contact Walsall Police (just dial 101) who are dealing with this.
