I’ve had a load of enquiries about an accident tonight up by the M6 toll slip road island just off the A5195 and Ogley Hay Road north of the A5 between Chasetown and Hammerwich – as luck would have it, there’s a fairly full report on the West Midlands Ambulance Service newsfeed which I post in full below.
My sympathies to those involved.
Car Collides with Street Signs
Sunday 19th July 2015 – 9pm – Steve Parry
A woman has been airlifted to hospital after the car she was driving collided with several street signs in Brownhills this evening.
The crash happened at the junction of the M6 Toll exit with the A5 at about 7.15pm.
Two ambulances and a community paramedic were joined at the scene by a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill in Staffordshire.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: ‘On arrival, crews found a car that had collided with several street signs, resulting in significant damage to the vehicle.
‘The driver, a woman in her forties, was treated for a head, leg, back and pelvic injuries.
‘She was immobilised and given pain relief before being airlifted to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
‘A female passenger in her twenties received wrist and facial injuries. A male child aged 6 years suffered head injuries. A man in his twenties received neck pain.
‘All three patients were taken by ambulance to New Cross Hospital for further assessment and treatment.’
