Three women killed in car crash
Three women were killed in a two-car crash which also left a 21-year-old man with life-threatening injuries, police said today.
West Midlands Police said four other people, including an 11-year-old girl who is recovering in hospital, were injured in the accident in West Bromwich at about 12.45am today.
A police spokesman said two women aged 35 and 28, who were travelling in a Ford Fiesta, and a 40-year-old woman travelling in a Citroen Saxo had all suffered fatal injuries in the crash.
A 21-year-old man, who was also in the Saxo, is currently in a critical condition in hospital, said the spokesman, who also confirmed that two women aged 28 and 36 and a 19-year-old man had survived.
Two of the fatalities were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, while another person died after being cut free from the wreckage and taken to hospital.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent five ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle and its Hazardous Area Response Team to the incident in Greets Green Road.
An ambulance service spokesman said: "Despite the best efforts of ambulance crews, nothing could be done for two persons, who were declared dead at the scene.
"Two further patients were treated for serious life-threatening injuries at the scene. One casualty was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital with a doctor travelling aboard the ambulance.
"The other person was conveyed to Sandwell and District Hospital in a critical condition".
