A driver was left trapped in his Range Rover after he crashed into the front of a Solihull home.
The man had to be freed from his vehicle after suffering injuries in the collision on Widney Lane this morning (Sun, Jan 24).
It is believed he may have suffered a medical episode prior to the crash, though it’s understood his injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.
All three emergency services attended the scene, near to the junction of Monkspath Hall Road, after the property was smashed into at around 10.20am.
A dramatic image captured the aftermath – with the motor’s front end inside the wreckage of a ground floor room.
Police cordoned off the residential road and firefighters rescued the man from the vehicle. The car was later removed from the house by the tech rescue team at West Midlands Fire Service.
The property was ‘made safe’ and a structural engineer was asked to attend.
A spokeswoman for the service told BirminghamLive: “We have been out to an incident, the time of call was 10.21am.
“We sent two crews, one from Solihull and one from Billesley. The incident involved one car in collision with a house. One man was trapped by injuries only.
“He has been extricated from the vehicle. Our tech rescue team went out to it and have removed the vehicle and made the structure safe.
“A structural engineer has been requested to attend.”
