Two police officers have been seriously injured after a suspected drink driver crashed into them in the Black Country.

One of the victims was knocked unconcious after it happened on the A461 in Titpton in the very early hours of Sunday morning and has a broken leg.

The other suffered serious fractures to both legs, but both are now in a stable condition in hospital.

A 37 year old woman has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving and was also taken to hospital with a suspected broken shoulder.

Chief Inspector Jack Hadley, from West Midlands Police, added: ``Despite their serious injuries, this crash could have been much worse for all concerned.

``The officers were initially treated by colleagues before firearms officers - who have advanced life-saving skills - arrived to provide major trauma care.

``Paramedics then took over sending three ambulances and three doctors to the scene.

``I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident and has not yet spoken to police to get in touch.''

The driver of the car stopped by officers was not seriously injured.
