A WOMAN had to be cut free from a car in Pedmore this morning (Friday, February 17) after suffering injuries to her face in a crash.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was first on the scene of the two-car smash in Ham Lane, at the junctions with Foley Road and Beckman Road, at about 8.40am.

The woman, in her late 30s, was taken to Russells Hall Hospital by the ambulance service, who sent two ambulances to the scene, after being released by firefighters.

Crews from West Midlands Fire Service also provided treatment to a five-year-old boy and a woman in her late 60s, who suffered from minor injuries, but the pair were later discharged at the scene following precautionary checks from paramedics.

Neil Spencer, a spokesman for West Midlands Fire Service, said: “We were called at 8.46am to Ham Lane in Pedmore from the ambulance service.

“We sent two fire engines, a total of 10 firefighters from Brierley Hill and Stourbridge, to the incident, which involved two cars in collision. Both vehicles were still upright.

“One woman, in her late 60s, and a five-year-old boy received medical treatment from firefighters and one woman was trapped in the vehicle by her injuries.

“The woman in her late 30s was released from the car by firefighters using cutting equipment and was taken to hospital.”

Three litres of diesel was also spilled onto the road during the crash, which saw police in attendance to manage the traffic levels.

Highways were also requested to the scene to deal with the small amount of fuel that was affecting the road.
