AMBULANCE crews have said it was a miracle no-one was seriously injured in a crash early this morning (Friday).

They were called to Armorial Road before 1am after a car hit a tree before hitting a parked van and house and ending up with its bonnet pointing upwards.

The driver, a man believed to be in his 30s, suffered a minor wrist injury and was taken to hospital but escaped otherwise unharmed.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had left the carriageway, collided with a tree, and had come to rest on a driveway against a parked van and a house, with its bonnet pointing in the air.

“With the assistance of the emergency services the driver of the car managed climb out of a rear window of the vehicle to safety.

“An ambulance officer at the scene commented that given the nature of the incident and the damaged caused, it was a miracle that no one was seriously injured.”
