West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Hampton Road in Knowle shortly before 8pm. Three ambulances, an incident support officer, a BASICS emergency medic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire attended the scene.

An ambulance spokeswoman said: “On arrival crews found two cars which had been involved in a significant collision. One occupant of a car, a 17 year old teenage boy, had been ejected in the collision.

“The teenager sustained a serious head injury and suspected chest and pelvic injuries. He was treated and stabilised on scene, immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board and airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and treatment. Medics were pre alerted to the arrival of the teenager who was said to be in a serious condition.

“A second young man from the same car was trapped in the vehicle and had suffered a nasty fracture to his leg. Crews administered pain relief to the man before carefully extricating him from the vehicle with help from the fire service who removed the roof of the car. The man was transferred by land ambulance on blue lights to Heartlands Hospital.

“A third man from the same car suffered neck and back pain. He too was immobilised before being taken by land ambulance to Heartlands Hospital.

“A man, believed to be in his 60s, from the second car suffered neck and back pain. Crews assessed him on scene and immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board before he was taken to Warwick Hospital.”
