An elderly woman has suffered very serious leg injuries after a collision with a car in a car park.

It happened at the back of the Co-op, off Market Street, in Kingswinford at about 10.05am yesterday morning.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with two doctors and a critical care paramedic on board were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found an 88-year-old woman who had suffered very serious leg and pelvic injuries.

“Ambulance staff and the doctors worked on her at the scene to stabilise her condition.  She received pain relief and had her legs splinted before she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctors travelled with the ambulance crew.

“The driver of the car, a 75-year-old woman was assessed at the scene.  She was suffering from shock but was discharged after treatment.”
