Wednesday 27th November 2013 – 8.20am – Suzie Fothergill.

A man has died following a road traffic collision in Birmingham yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on Rea Street in Birmingham shortly before 10.25pm yesterday evening.

An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Trust’s MERIT rapid response vehicle, carrying a critical care paramedic and a trauma doctor, were dispatched to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of a single car that had been in collision with a factory wall.

“On arrival at the scene crews treated a man for serious multiple injuries before conveying him to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. The trauma doctor travelled on board the ambulance, continuing to provide emergency medical treatment whilst on route to hospital, where medics were on standby awaiting their arrival.

“Unfortunately despite best efforts of ambulance personnel and hospital medics nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased.”
