TWO MEN were taken to hospital in the early hours of Sunday morning (August 9) after colliding with a tree in Solihull.

Emergency services were called to the incident at the junction of Streetsbrook Road and Sharmans Cross Road at around 1.15am.

The two men, thought to be in their 20s, were taken to Heartlands Hospital.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The driver had a broken arm and a tender abdomen. He was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and neck collar and was taken to Heartlands Hospital by ambulance accompanied by the CARE team.

“The passenger who had managed to get himself out of the car after the crash, didn’t appear injured but, as a precaution due to the nature of the crash, he was also immobilised and was taken to the same hospital by ambulance.”
