A MARRIED couple were killed in a horror crash involving six cars in Wythall on Monday, February 22.

Jolel Miah, aged 50, and Mussammat Khatun, aged 45, both from Birmingham, were pronounced dead at the scene following the collision on the A435 between Junction 3 for the M42 and the Becketts Farm roundabout.

The collision happened at the junction of the A435 and Hill Lane.

Due to the nature of the incident, two air and three land ambulances were sent to the scene at around 4.40pm.

Crews arrived to find two occupants from one of the vehicles in critical condition.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The critical care teams from the air ambulances split up to deliver advanced trauma care to the man and woman.

“Unfortunately though, despite everyone’s best efforts, nothing could be done to save them and both patients were confirmed dead at the scene.

“One man from another vehicle was treated for serious injuries and was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on blue lights and sirens for further treatment.

“A fourth patient, also a man, was treated at the scene for minor injuries before being taken to the QE.

“The fifth and final patient was assessed by ambulance crews and discharged at the scene.”

Sergeant Leon Westwood of West Mercia Police added: “A black Honda Civic travelling south on the A435 towards the M42 was involved in a collision near to the petrol station, resulting in it crossing the central reservation into oncoming traffic on the northbound carriageway.

“Sadly, both occupants of the Honda were pronounced dead at the scene and our thoughts are with their families at this terribly sad time.”
