Tollhouse Way | 22 Feb 2012

A man has been taken to hospital following a road traffic collision in Smethwick last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Tollhouse Way in Smethwick shortly before 10pm yesterday evening.

Two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle were dispatched to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival at the scene crews found a cyclist and a car that had been in collision.

“The cyclist, a man in his 40’s, was treated at the scene for arm, leg, pelvic and serious facial injuries. The man was fully immobilised before being conveyed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.

“The hospital was pre-alerted to the arrival of the man and of his injuries.

“The use of safety helmets by cyclists can dramatically reduce the level of injury sustained should an accident occur.  Fortunately on this occasion the man was wearing one.”
