Woman critical after crash outside surgery.

A WOMAN suffered critical injuries when she was in collision with a car in Northfield.

The victim was struck outside the GP surgery in Bunbury Road at the junction with Hole Lane, at about 4.50pm on Wednesday.

A nurse was quickly on scene and provided care until paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service arrived minutes later.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "On arrival, ambulance crews took over care of the woman who had suffered very serious injuries.

"Staff used advanced life support techniques at the scene before she was taken by ambulance on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. Doctors travelled with the ambulance crew. There were a man and a woman in the car; neither was injured."

Bunbury Road was closed off while the emergency services dealt with the situation.
