Emergency services attended the scene in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, assessing the minor injuries of two women who were inside the vehicle at the time.

The Fire Service from Highgate, West Midlands, posted photos of the incident on Twitter, saying:

"We often attend incidents where a slight change in circumstances such as direction or time, could’ve resulted in tragedy.

“This #RTC in #BordesleyGreen today was one of those.

“Luckily, the pub was closed and the two women from the car suffered only minor injuries.”

A spokeswoman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said paramedics treated two women for minor injuries, before they were taken to hospital for further checks.
