Despite all three vehicles involved suffering major damage, the three drivers all suffered minor injuries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Astonishingly, given the level of damage, the injuries sustained appeared not to be too serious.

“A 20 year old man from a white car had managed to get out of the vehicle and was lying on the ground. He was complaining of back pain. He was immobilised before being taken to Heartlands Hospital.

“A man in his 40s from a second car had suffered leg injuries and was taken to the same hospital, while a man estimated to be in his 60s from the third car was discharged at scene after an assessment by ambulance staff.

“There is no doubt that the safety system on the cars saved the drivers from far more serious injuries.”
