Paramedics praise quality child car seats after M42 collision

AMBULANCE staff say that the good quality child seats undoubtedly saved two young children from potentially serious injuries when the car they were in was involved in a serious accident.

The car, which was in a collision with an HGV, rolled over before landing back on its wheels against the central reservation.

The incident happened on the northbound carriageway of the M42 at just after 4pm yesterday, Wednesday, August 5.

An ambulance and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they saw a car that had suffered significant damage.

“Thankfully, the safety systems had done their job and the woman and two young girls were largely uninjured.

“After being assessed at the scene, they were taken to Heartlands Hospital as a precaution.

“The ambulance staff at the scene, said that the good quality car seats that the children had been in gave the youngsters excellent protection during the crash.”
