Thursday 15th December 2016 – 12.32pm – Murray MacGregor.

A woman has died despite intensive care provided by ambulance staff after a two car collision.

The crash happened near the junction of Stubbers Green Road and Wharf Approach in Aldridge at just after 7.00am.

Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the doctor and critical care paramedic from the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, who responded in a rapid response vehicle, were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It was immediately clear that one of the two casualties, a woman, was in a very serious condition.

“The crew got her onto the ambulance and immediately started moving towards Walsall Manor Hospital using blue lights and sirens.  They rendezvoused with the doctor from Cosford on Mellish Road and he performed advanced interventions.  Sadly, despite all efforts, it wasn’t possible to save her.

“The driver of the other car, a 58 year old woman was complaining of right sided pain and was disorientated.  After treatment at the scene, she was taken to Walsall Manor Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
