The pedestrian was injured during the incident in Louise Street, Gornal, on Saturday.

Police, paramedics, firefighters and an air ambulance were all sent to the scene on the village’s high street at around 1.30pm on Saturday.

The road was closed as emergency services dealt with the incident and the man was taken to hospital.

Police are investigating the crash and the driver of the car involved is said to be helping officers with their inquiries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We received multiple 999 calls at 1.36pm on Saturday, July 4, to reports of a two-car RTC where a pedestrian had also been injured outside Sainsbury's in Louise Street.

"An ambulance, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended.

"Crews arrived to find a car which had collided with a stationary car and a pedestrian who had been injured.

"The pedestrian, a man, suffered serious injuries and received trauma care by the team of ambulance staff before he was taken by land ambulance for further emergency care. A child from one of the cars was also assessed but was uninjured."

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said on Monday: "The victim has serious leg injuries and the driver has been interviewed under caution.

"Enquiries continue."
