A woman has died and a man required hospital treatment following a two-car collision in Dudley last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Priory Road in Dudley, shortly after 10.35pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had suffered significant damage in the collision, one of which had come to rest on its side.

“From that car, a woman, who was found lying in the road, had suffered very serious injuries as a result of the incident and was in cardiac arrest.

“CPR was already being carried out when ambulance staff arrived, which they took over and administered advanced life support.

“However, sadly it became apparent that nothing could be done to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“There was a second patient from the same car, a man believed to be in his 20s.

“He was treated for neck and back injuries, given pain relief and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.”
