A man was airlifted to hospital after a car rolled off a driveway and ran over his leg.

Paramedics were called to Roman Road in Norton, Stourbridge, today.

The man, in his 30s, was airlifted to hospital with a lower leg injury, which was bleeding heavily.

Claire Brown, West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman, said: "Ambulance crews worked as a team to administer pain relief to the man whilst applying pressure to the wound to stem the bleeding.

"They then used specialised dressings to bandage the wound to stop the bleeding before immobilising his leg.

"The man was then placed into a scoop stretcher before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency treatment."

The crash happened just before 11.45am.
