A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of a car that had been in collision with a number of stationary vehicles.

“The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 30s, was trapped in the vehicle for approximately one hour whilst emergency services worked together to free him safely.

“The man was treated for a chest injury and his lung was required to be decompressed at the scene.

“The hospital was pre-alerted to the arrival of the man and of his injuries.”
