Crashes leave car on wall and street lighting knocked out
A man was taken to hospital and street lighting was knocked out after two Black Country crashes last night.
Passers-by helped a man get out of his car after it crashed into a wall in one incident in Tividale.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances to the scene, where the car had ended up resting on top of a small wall in Portway Hill near the Wheatsheaf pub at around 7.40pm.
A man in his 20s was given pain relief by crews before he was taken to Russells Hall hospital in Dudley.
An ambulance spokesman said: "One patient, a man in his 20s, was helped out the vehicle by passers-by before we arrived.
"He suffered head and back pain and was given pain relief on the scene and immobilised before he was taken to Russells Hall."
Meanwhile a street lamp was knocked over in a separate smash on Oldbury Ringway.
Oldbury Fire Station tweeted photos of the incident warning that there would be no lighting on the ringway as a result.
Sandwell Council's highways team today said they were working to arrange repairs ASAP.
