A woman was incredibly fortunate to walk away uninjured following a two-car collision yesterday (Tuesday) which saw her car roll onto its roof.

West Midlands Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Broadway and Birmingham Road in Walsall, at 3.15pm, and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the West Midlands Care Team to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We arrived on scene to find a car on its roof and five patients in total, one of whom was from the car that had overturned.

“Amazingly, the woman in that car did not suffer any injuries and following assessment from ambulance staff was discharged at the scene. Thankfully luck was on her side to walk away uninjured.

“There were four patients in the other car, three males and a female. They were also assessed by crews and treated for minor injuries but again, did not require transporting to hospital.”
