Ambulance staff were left stunned after turning up at the scene of a crash to find a car that had suffered massive damage, yet the driver was unhurt.

The crash happened on Soho Way in Smethwick at about 11.10pm last night.

An ambulance was sent to the scene after three 999 calls.

When crews arrived they found a car that had been left in a ‘banana’ shape with the roof crushed down after rolling over and hitting a lamppost.

The man driving had somehow managed to get out of the vehicle and was walking about at the scene.

He was complaining of some back and chest pain but had no obvious injuries.

He refused immobilisation but was taken to Sandwell Hospital as a precaution.
