A WOMAN received vital trauma care from ambulance staff following a collision with a car in Acocks Green last week (December 29).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident which occurred near the junction of Gospel Lane and Olton Boulevard East in Acocks Green at 7.15am.

A passing ambulance stopped to render aid whilst a second ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a senior critical care paramedic attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The pedestrian was unconscious and had suffered multiple serious injuries.

“The team of ambulance staff administered advanced trauma care on scene before she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to nearby Heartlands Hospital.

“Upon arrival, the Trust’s MERIT trauma doctor met up with the ambulance crew and jumped on board to continue emergency treatment during the onward blue light transfer to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a major trauma centre.

“No one was injured in the car however ambulance staff did provide treatment to a woman passer-by who reportedly witnessed the incident and required hospital care.”
