A teenage boy has ended up in hospital this afternoon after a road traffic collision in Birmingham.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Clapgate Lane, Bartley Green, at around 2.30pm (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene. The Mental Health Triage Car with a paramedic, police officer and mental health nurse on board were also sent to the incident due to their close proximity.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The 15-year-old boy was lying in the road upon our arrival. He had sustained a head injury in the collision. The team of ambulance staff worked quickly to assess and treat the teenager, before he was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further treatment.”
