A TEENAGE girl is fighting for her life after a car smashed into a tram in Wolverhampton.
The 17-year-old was a passenger in a silver Vauxhall which crashed into the tram just after 6.30am this morning.
Paramedics said the teen was found in a “life-threatening” condition.
The driver of the car – a teenage boy – was treated for minor injuries in hospital.
The city centre smash caused rush hour chaos in the city with huge tailbacks and West Midlands Metro tram services suspended.
A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “Staff worked quickly to administer advanced trauma care to the patient at the scene and en route to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
“The second occupant of the car, a teenage boy, was treated for injuries not believed to be serious and was conveyed to New Cross Hospital.”
It is understood another passenger suffered minor injuries.
Tram services between The Royal and Wolverhampton St George’s were halted after the crash.

“One female was assisted by fire service personnel. One male casualty vacated the vehicle prior to the crews’ arrival and received first aid treatment at the scene.
