Two people suffered serious injuries and were left trapped in their car following a collision with a lamppost last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Dudley Port in Tipton shortly after 11.35pm and sent two ambulances and a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle to the scene. The Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Cosford also attended in a rapid response vehicle.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Two patients were left trapped in the car following the collision, having to be cut free by the fire service.

“Crews were told the car also collided with a post box after crashing into the lamppost.

“The driver, a woman teenager, was treated for a suspected fractured jaw at the scene before being transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

“The passenger, a man believed to be in his 20s, was treated for a serious head injury and back pain before being taken to the same hospital.”
