Update on fatal Old Hill crash

Halesowen News: Mangled wreckage following fatal crash. Mangled wreckage following fatal crash.

AN elderly woman was killed in a three-car pile up in Old Hill yesterday (Thursday).

The woman, in her 80s, a passenger in one of the cars, died at the scene of the crash in Waterfall Lane.

An elderly man with serious injuries was been taken to hospital and four other people were treated for minor injuries.

Police closed the road between Higgs Field Crescent and Owens Way following the accident shortly before noon as ambulance crews fought to save the woman, who was in cardiac arrest.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokesman said: “Ambulance staff carried out CPR on the woman but sadly, despite best efforts, nothing could be done to save her and she was confirmed dead on scene.

The driver from the same car, an elderly man, had to be cut free from the vehicle with suspected abdominal and pelvic injuries.

Although the air ambulance was called, the man was taken by road ambulance to the region’s trauma centre at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The driver of the second car, a man in his 30s, collapsed after getting himself out of his vehicle and was treated for chest and leg pain before being taken to Sandwell Hospital.

Three occupants from the third car, two women and a young girl, were described as “walking wounded” by ambulance staff.

The girl, thought to be under five, suffered a bump to her head and one of the women was treated for a medical condition. All three were taken to Russells Hall Hospital as a precaution.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the collision investigation unit on 101.

Wasn't there an article about how dangerous this stretch of road was a while back? Looks like they had a point, sadly.

Was the Landlords rather large green jeep parked like it normally is on many days??

Overhanging the pavement in to the road causing obstruction on the bend?? at the point where the benches are and you go in to the pub

The Police Seriously need to look at this!!!

My recommendation is to double yellow line that street as it is highly dangerous especially when the pub car park is full

I Know i use this road twice a day to and from work i hope the true cause is found out why this Happened RIP to the elderly lady
