An elderly woman has received advanced trauma care for serious injuries at the scene of a collision with a lorry this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Soho Road in Birmingham shortly before 10.45am. Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a pedestrian with multiple serious injuries following the collision.

“She was treated for a significant arm injury, as well as head and pelvic injuries. In order to stabilise her condition, she was anaesthetised at the scene by the air ambulance medic.

“She was then transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, with the hospital having been alerted to her condition prior to arrival.

“Unfortunately, the woman’s injuries are thought to be extremely serious.”
