A CHILD remains in a critical condition in hospital after a two car crash in Oldbury last night.

The smash happened at the junction of Parsons Hill and Wolverhampton Road at 7.50pm on February 6.

Emergency services closed the road while medics treated a number of casualties.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival, crews found multiple patients, one of which was in a critical condition.  Staff administered advanced trauma care to the girl, who was a passenger in one of the cars.  She was taken on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further treatment.

“A woman and two other children in the same car were treated for injuries not believed to be serious and taken to hospital.

West Midlands Ambulance Service dispatched four ambulances, two paramedic officers, the Hazardous Area Response Team and a Merit Trauma Doctor attended the scene.

The WMAS spokeswoman added: “There were four patients in the second car involved in the collision.  A woman in that vehicle was assessed and taken to hospital as a precaution.  A man and two children in the car were assessed and discharged at the scene.”
