Thursday 15th August 2013 – 7.30am – John Hawker.

Two men have died following an RTC in West Bromwich last night.

The crash occurred on Park Lane just after 10.00pm.  Three ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene. 

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had rolled over and come to rest on its roof.

“The two men who were travelling in the car were both ejected from the vehicle.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save one man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“Resuscitation attempts were carried out on the second man who was in traumatic cardiac arrest and these continued en route to Sandwell hospital.

“The hospital had been pre alerted to the man’s arrival and his serious injuries. 

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of ambulance crews and hospital medics, the second man was confirmed dead shortly after arriving at hospital.”

Ends.
