A MAN has died and two others have been assessed by ambulance staff following a road traffic collision in Birmingham this morning, Thursday, July 29.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of crash involving a car and a van at the junction of Mayfield Road and Fox Hollies Road, Acocks Green at around 8.50am.

Two ambulances, two paramedic officers, a critical care paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor and paramedic on board attended the scene.

An ambulance spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a van on its side with a passenger trapped.

“Ambulance staff worked quickly with fire colleagues to release the passenger, a man, but sadly nothing could be done to save him, and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“The drivers of both the van and the car, two men, were assessed by ambulance staff on scene but neither required hospital treatment and were both discharged on scene.”
