Man dies in crash on A51 between Lichfield and Tamworth

A man has died after a crash on a road between Lichfield and Tamworth.

A woman was also taken to hospital after the crash on the A51 shortly before 8am today (January 20).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two cars that had been significantly damaged in the collision.

“The driver of the one of the cars, a man, was trapped inside his vehicle which had overturned in the incident.

“He was found to be in cardiac arrest and quickly freed from the car. Ambulance staff immediately began CPR and administered advanced life support. Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the second car, a woman believed to be in her 50s, managed to get herself out and was fully conscious when ambulance staff arrived.

“She was treated for a shoulder injury and taken to Heartlands Hospital for further assessment.”
