The terrifying moment a car span out of control, smashed into another vehicle and hit a bollard right in front of an ambulance was caught by documentary film crews.
Paramedics were taking a patient to hospital when a car suddenly came hurtling toward them at high speed.
The ambulance driver Jo exclaimed "oh god' as the vehicle narrowly missed them and crashed into the central reservation.
Five people were injured in the serious crash and two more ambulances were called to deal with those involved.
When the car started smoking fire crews were also called to the scene, while the driver climbed out of his window and ran off before police arrived.
The dramatic crash was captured by camera crews working on BBC1 series 'Ambulance', as they followed the work of West Midlands paramedics.
The ambulance, driven by Jo with her colleague Suki, was taking Sam, who had threatened to commit suicide, to New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton.
The crash happens five minutes away from hospital in Tettenhall Road.
The white car crashed into another one carrying a couple and their 23-year-old daughter.
