Six men have escaped with only minor injuries after a crash that left debris strewn across a major road junction.
The collision involving two cars happened at the junction of Bristol Road and Elliot Road in the Selly Oak area of Birmingham at about 2.40am this morning.
The accident left one car against a set of traffic lights and the other without most of its bonnet.
A rapid response vehicle came across the crash shortly after it happened. It was backed up by a further response vehicle, three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer.
The initial call suggested that it was going to be a much more serious incident than it actually turned out to be.
Three men were taken to City Hospital from the white car – one had chest pain, a second head pain and the third, who was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board, had a leg injury,
A fourth man who came from the dark coloured car was also immobilised with back pain. All four had managed to get out of their vehicles unaided.
Given the level of damage to the cars, the amount of debris across the road, there is no doubt that these four men have the strength of modern car design to thank for avoiding serious injury.”
