West Midlands Police are appealing for witnesses and information following a serious collision in Hay Mills yesterday (22/07).

Officers were alerted to a multiple car collision involving up to six vehicles on Berkeley Road East just before 8pm.

It’s thought a red Vauxhall Corsa lost control and collided with several other vehicles.

Two pedestrians, who were standing near one of the parked cars were injured and taken to hospital for injuries which are serious but not thought to be life-threatening.

The driver of the car was also taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find two pedestrians who had been involved in a collision with a car which had also collided with parked cars.

“One pedestrian, a woman, sustained serious injuries which required trauma care at the roadside. Once stabilised, she was taken on blue lights and sirens to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency treatment.

“A second pedestrian, a man, was given treatment on scene for less serious injuries before being taken to Heartlands Hospital.

“The driver of the car, a man, suffered relatively minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution for further checks.”

An investigation is underway, and investigators are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time and saw what happened.

Sergeant Lee Froggatt, from the force’s traffic unit, said: “We need to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time but not spoken to us already. I’d also ask if anyone has any dashcam footage from the area on that evening to get in touch.

“We are trying to piece together what happened in the lead up to this collision as our enquiries continue.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via Live Chat on the West Midlands Police website between 8am and midnight or call on 101 anytime. Quote log number 2401 of 22 July.
