A man and a woman have died in a road traffic collision in Shrewsbury this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A458 Welshpool Road near to the Windmill Inn, Halfway House at around 12.20pm earlier today (Sunday). Three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a motorcycle and car which had been involved in a significant collision.
“Sadly it quickly became apparent to crews that nothing could be done to save the two riders of the motorcycle, a man and a woman, and they were confirmed dead on scene.
“The three occupants of the car, two women and a man, sustained minor injuries. All three were assessed on scene, one woman was immobilised as a precaution, before they were taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.”
