A man, aged 23, has suffered multiple injuries after a collision with a car in the early hours of this morning (18/09).

Emergency services were dispatched to Bristol Road, near McDonalds, in Edgbaston, at around 1.35AM, to reports of a collision.

A spokesperson from West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “When crews arrived they found a 23-year-old man who was lying in the road.

“The car, which was nearby, had sustained significant damage to the windscreen.  The driver was unhurt.

“The pedestrian had suffered multiple injuries. He was immobilised at the scene, but due to the incident being close to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, the crew left scene just 14 minutes after arriving.

“The doctor travelled with the crew and requested that medics at the hospital be on standby to anaesthetise the patient on arrival.”

The road was closed whilst officers investigated the incident and recovered the vehicle.
