Man and two teenaged girls die in Kingswinford road crash

A MAN in his 20s and two teenage girls have died after an horrific car crash in Kingswinford last night. The ambulance service was called by police at 8.54pm (Tuesday) to Bromley Lane after a yellow Skoda Fabia hit a tree. Six ambulances were sent to the scene plus the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car, the MERIT car with a doctor and critical care paramedic on board, a BASICS emergency doctor, as well as three paramedic officers.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the first medics arrived on the scene, near the junction with Standhills Road, three minutes after the initial call was taken and she added: “Crews arrived at the scene to find a car had hit a tree, with five patients involved. “Sadly, it soon became clear nothing could be done to save the driver of the car, a man, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. “Despite best efforts of staff, two teenage girls who were back seat passengers in the vehicle were also confirmed deceased at the scene.

“The front seat passenger, a teenage boy was treated for life threatening injuries at the scene before being conveyed on blue lights and sirens to the Major Trauma Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further treatment. “The final back seat passenger, a teenage girl, was treated for potentially life-threatening injuries and was also conveyed on blue lights and sirens to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further treatment. “Our thoughts go out to the families of all those involved at this time.”

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said the families of all of those involved had been informed. Sergeant Dean Caswell, who is leading the investigation, said: “This is a tragic time for the families of those involved, and we have specially trained officers who will be supporting them through the difficult time ahead. “The investigation is at a really early stage, and we’re trying to establish exactly what happened and why.

“I’d urge anyone who saw the Skoda driving in the area last night, or who may have captured anything on dash-cam footage, to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Police have also said a patrol car was in the vicinity of the collision, but it is not known if there was any interaction with the Skoda and this will be investigated.
