A man and woman had an "extraordinary escape" after a 4x4 vehicle ended up on their car's bonnet after a crash in Wolverhampton, ambulance staff said.
A Ford Maverick 4x4 ended up on top of a Volkswagen Golf in the crash on Bridgnorth Road, Wombourne, at around 8.15pm on Tuesday.
A young man and a woman were trapped in the Golf until firefighters could free them.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "The man remained trapped for over an hour while ambulance staff worked with firefighters to free him.
"He had suffered a fractured left leg and had potentially serious internal injuries.
"He was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being airlifted to the trauma centre at Selly Oak Hospital."
The spokesman added: "The woman in the Golf and the man in the Ford were essentially uninjured but both were immobilised using neck collars and spinal boards before being taken in separate land ambulances to Russell's Hall Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
"Considering where the Ford ended up, this could so easily have been a far more serious crash."
