Emergency services rushed to the scene in Castle Bromwich where two cars were involved in a collision at the junction of Lanchester Way and the busy A452.

The road runs parallel to a stretch of the M6 that leads into Birmingham.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene where two men, drivers of two of the cars were injured in the crash.

One man, aged 37, died as a result of a serious head injury after his Peugeot 2017 was struck, whereas the other suffered minor injuries and was transported to hospital.

Two men, aged 42 and 25 have been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The A452 was closed following the crash.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two patients, both men, following the collision.

“One of the men was still inside his car and after ambulance staff quickly discovered he had suffered serious injuries in the incident, he was rapidly freed from his vehicle and treatment began immediately.

“Specialist trauma care was administered, however, sadly it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The second man, who was from another car, was assessed and treated for minor injuries at the scene before being transported to Heartlands Hospital.”
