THE TWO people who died after a six-vehicle horror crash in Wythall yesterday afternoon have been named by police.
Jolel Miah, aged 50, and Mussammat Khatun, aged 45, both from Birmingham, were pronounced dead at the scene following the collision on the A435 between Junction 2 for the M42 and the Becketts Farm roundabout.
It happened when a black Honda Civic travelling south on the A435 towards the M42 crashed near the petrol station, which led to it crossing the central reservation and into oncoming traffic on the southbound carriageway.
Due to the severity of the incident, two air ambulances and three ambulances were sent to the scene at around 4.40pm.
Crews arrived to find two people in one of the vehicles in critical condition.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The critical care teams from the air ambulances split up to deliver advanced trauma care to the man and woman.
“Unfortunately though, despite everyone’s best efforts, nothing could be done to save them and both patients were confirmed dead at the scene.
“One man from another vehicle was treated for serious injuries and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on blue lights and sirens for further treatment.
“A fourth patient, also a man, was treated at the scene for minor injuries before being taken to the QE.
“The fifth and final patient was assessed by ambulance crews and discharged at the scene.”
Sgt Leon Westwood of West Mercia Police added their thoughts were with the families of the two who had died at this terribly sad time.
