Two children left fighting for their lives after car ploughed into a tree in Birmingham horror smash


TWO children are fighting for their lives after a car crashed into a tree in Birmingham.

The boy and girl are in critical condition in hospital after the horror smash in the Bordesley Green area of the city.

Shocked witnesses said the kids looked “in a bad way” following the crash just before 5am today.

Another girl travelling in the car is in a serious condition as is the female driver of the silver Ford hatchback.

A fourth youngster had been taken to hospital with a fractured collarbone, cops said.

Pictures show the bonnet of the car completely destroyed with children’s car seats strewn across the road.

Police have set up a cordon around the scene of the crash as an investigation is launched.

One resident, who did not want to be named, said: “The kids looked in a bad way, paramedics were working on them but it looked bad.

“They couldn’t have been more than six years old, maybe younger.”

West Midlands Police said: “A woman and three children have been taken to hospital where their injuries are described as serious.

“A fourth child has also been taken to hospital with a fractured collar bone.
