Two teenagers and a girl were among the casualties in the two-car crash which happened on Belgrave Middleway at around 9.30pm on Sunday.

One woman had to be cut free by firefighters and suffered "potentially serious injuries" but the other four people involved were not thought to be seriously hurt.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "On arrival, crews found two cars that had been in collision.

“There were five patients in total, one of whom, a woman, was trapped inside one of the cars.

"She was cut out with assistance from the fire service, with ambulance staff carefully monitoring her throughout that process.

“She was treated for potentially serious injuries before being transported to Heartlands Hospital.

"A teenage male travelled on the same ambulance having received treatment for injuries not believed to be serious.

“A man, who was driving one of the cars, was treated for minor injuries and taken to City Hospital for further assessment.

“A girl and a second teenager were both taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital but thankfully their injuries were not thought to be serious.”

Five ambulances, a paramedic officer and a Mental Health Triage Car were on the scene in less than two minutes, the spokesman added.

The dual carriageway Belgrave Middleway, part of the main ring road around Birmingham city centre, was the scene of an awful crash in which six people died in 2017 while a pedestrian died after being hit by a car on the same road in October last year.
