A woman and a toddler have been seriously injured following a collision with a car this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Chester Road and Sycamore Road in Erdington, at 12.05pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, two doctors and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to discover two patients who had been seriously injured in collision with a car.
“A young girl was already receiving treatment from an off duty student nurse when ambulance staff arrived.
“She was treated for a number of serious injuries and received advanced trauma care at the scene. She was immobilised and transported to Birmingham Children’s Hospital by land ambulance. A doctor travelled with the child to continue treatment en-route to the hospital, which had been alerted to her condition prior to arrival.
“Unfortunately her injuries are thought to be extremely serious.
“The woman, who is believed to be in her 40s, was also treated for a number of serious injuries, including suspected abdominal and pelvic injuries. She was immobilised with the use of a pelvic binder and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, by land ambulance.”
