Woman cut free from car after Wall Island crash in Lichfield

A woman has been cut free from a car after a crash in Lichfield.

The incident happened at the Wall Island at 11.15am this morning (January 31.)

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found one car off the road and in a bush and a second car with a woman trapped inside.

“Medics were concerned that the woman driver, who sustained shoulder and chest injuries, had a reduced level of consciousness following the collision.

“She was given oxygen and fluids by ambulance staff while the fire service worked around them to carefully cut away the car roof. The woman was lifted out of the car safely on a spinal board to keep her immobile.

“Due to deteriorating weather conditions, the Midlands Air Ambulance helicopter was unable to airlift the woman so she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”

“The driver of the second car, a man in his 20s, suffered minor injuries.

    The accident was much further up and not by the roundabouts themselves.

    We were there and attended on the scene. I really do hope the lady is okay and recovering.
