A MAN has died following a two-car crash in Hollywood.

Emergency services rushed to Houndsfield Lane, Hollywood just before 7.45am this morning (July 26).

Two men in one vehicle were treated for minor injuries but the male driver of the second car was confirmed dead at the scene and his next of kin have been informed.

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A spokesperson for the service said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had suffered significant damage and three patients, all male.

“One of the patients was trapped inside his vehicle and ambulance staff worked with emergency services partners to provide advanced life support whilst he was being freed.

“Treatment continued once the patient was out of the car but sadly, despite everyone’s best efforts, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The remaining two patients were assessed and treated for minor injuries before being discharged at the scene.”

West Mercia Police say they are carrying out enquiries into the collision and are appealing for witnesses, including any motorists on the road around the time with dash-cam footage.
