The woman had to be cut free from her car after a crash in Codsall Road, near Tettenhall.

Both patients were taken to New Cross Hospital for treatment, but it is believed they are not in a serious condition.

The woman had suspected neck and pelvic injuries.

Claire Brown, a spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: "The driver of one car, a woman in her 30s, sustained neck pain and a suspected pelvic injury in the collision and needed extricating from the car with help from the fire service.

"The woman was given pain relief and immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint before being taken to New Cross Hospital by ambulance.

"Her baby, who suffered no apparent injuries, was also taken to the same hospital as a precaution.

“After assessing the other occupants of the two cars involved, ambulance crews took the decision to convey three other children to New Cross Hospital for further precautionary checks."
