Scenes from the crash showed attending officers stood between two halves of the car, which is said to have crashed on the evening of January 27 at 7:30pm, BirminghamLive reported.

A report from the scene by a representative for West Bromwich Fire Station gave updates on the scene of the crash, saying that the driver of the vehicle had suffered only "minor injuries".

Quite the miracle considering the absolute devastation of the crash, but it would appear the driver has since been treated for his injuries.

One tweet from West Bromwich Fire Station read: "[We] have been in attendance at serious road traffic collision, miraculously the driver escaped with minor injuries."

National Express West Midlands also confirmed that there was disruption to its services as emergency response teams attended the scene.

A road closure was in place until 10:45pm, with no updates yet given as police continue their investigations into the brutal crash.
