Car v tree in Telford – thank you to police from ambulance crew

Further to the press release issued this morning about an RTC in Hadley, Telford, the ambulance crew first on scene have praised the efforts of two West Mercia police officers from Shrewsbury.

The police officers reportedly found the car on fire with a passenger inside.  Despite the fact that the car was on fire, they managed to cut his seatbelt and drag the man from the wreckage to a safe distance before the car was totally engulfed in flames.

The attending ambulance crews would like to pass on their appreciation and respect to the officers who’s actions were very brave in such a dangerous situation. The police officers will be nominated for a WMAS Chief Officers Commendation.

Notes to editors: There will be no more details released regarding this case. Please contact West Mercia Police for more information.
