West Heath Road was closed between Fordrough and Staple Lodge Road for over three hours this morning as police investigated a serious accident in which an elderly man was struck by a car.
The accident happened close to the West Heath Surgery at around 8.50am.
A number of local nurses attended to the injured pedestrian until two ambulances and a rapid response vehicle were dispatched to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of a car and a pedestrian that had been in collision.
“On arrival at the scene crews found an elderly man lying in the road. He was treated for serious multiple injuries to his head, shoulder and leg. The man was fully immobilised and taken to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.”
