Two men have been injured after a crash that left the car they were in looking decidedly ‘banana’ shaped.

A rapid response vehicle was on scene within three minutes of the call and was backed up by two ambulances.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman, said: “Witnesses at the scene said that the car had rolled over twice before colliding with traffic lights. The car was on its wheels when ambulance staff arrived.

“Ambulance staff were told that both men were briefly unconscious. However, one of the occupants was able to get out of the vehicle himself. He was immobilised with neck pain and a head injury.

“The other occupant was freed after firefighters removed the roof. He was also treated for back injuries and was immobilised.

“Both men, who were estimated to be in their 20s, were taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for assessment.”
