Thursday 7th March 2013 – 5.10pm – Chris Kowalik.
Two men have been taken to hospital following a road traffic collision involving a car and a van in Herefordshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of the A449 and the B4224 at Old Gore, between Ross-on-Wye and Much Marcle.
A community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a senior paramedic officer in a rapid response vehicle and two ambulance crews attended. The crew of the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham also attended, arriving in a rapid response vehicle because the helicopter was unable to fly due to poor visibility.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a van overturned having collided with a BMW. The driver of the car was uninjured, but its male passenger had head and neck pain and was taken to Hereford County Hospital.
“Ambulance and fire personnel worked together to free a man in his forties who was the driver of the overturned van. He had abdominal pain and spinal tenderness. He was immobilised and taken to the same hospital.”
