One man has died and a woman has been taken to hospital after a collision during this morning’s rush hour in Solihull.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call at 8.45am reporting a road traffic collision involving two cars on Eastcote Lane in Hampton-in-Arden, Solihull earlier today (Friday). A community paramedic, an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find one car which had left the road. Sadly nothing could be done to save the driver, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“The driver of the second car, a woman in her 50s, sustained a chest injury. Ambulance staff administered pain relief to help ease her discomfort before she was taken to Heartlands Hospital for further checks.”
