A West Midlands Ambulance service spokesman said they'd been called to scene at 1.35am in the morning (04/08/2014).
"Crews arrived to find a car that had left the road, travelled over a wall and entered the toilets of the Longford House Beefeater public house.
"The car was embedded in the building and the man driving the car was significantly trapped.
"The man, believed to be in his late 30s, continued to receive treatment to his leg injuries for the 90 minutes that he was trapped.''

The spokesman finished his statement by saying: "Considering the damage to the car and the extensive damage to the building, it is extremely fortunate no one was more seriously or fatally injured in the crash."
