Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT trauma, doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The middle aged man from one vehicle was rapidly extricated, but sadly despite advanced life support, it was not possible to save him and he was confirmed dead at  the scene.

“The 27 year old driver of the other vehicle had suffered a pelvic injury along with knee, ankle and seat belt injuries.  He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place before being taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
