Fire crews had to cut two people from the wreckage of a vehicle after a crash in Sutton Coldfield on Thursday night.
Three people in total were injured in the accident, which happened at 6.30pm at the junction of Monmouth Drive and Digby Road.
Firefighters needed to use cutting equipment to set a man and a woman free, after the crash, from the car they were travelling in. The pair were then taken to Good Hope Hospital.
