A MAN was taken to hospital with serious injuries after his car crashed into a tree in Bromsgrove yesterday afternoon (Thursday).

The man in his 50s was rescued from the collision by passersby at about 12.45pm on Sandy Lane who then called the emergency services. Crews from Redditch and Bromsgrove Fire Stations attended the incident alongside an ambulance and air ambulance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car that had come to rest against a tree and the driver, a man, in cardiac arrest.

“The man, who had been taken out of the car by bystanders, received CPR and advanced life support from ambulance staff before being moved on to a land ambulance.

“The air crew travelled with the patient to help continue treatment en-route to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, during which time they managed to successfully restart his heart.

“On arrival at the hospital, the man’s condition is still thought to be serious.”

He was then taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital but the extent of his injuries is still unknown.
