Two men have been taken to hospital after the car they were travelling in crashed in Bridgnorth.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to near The Down Inn on the B4364 Ludlow Road just outside Bridgnorth just after 10.00pm last night (Friday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a responder paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The front seat passenger of the car, a man in his 20s, had reportedly hit his head on the windscreen in the crash and sustained a serious head injury.
“Crews and the doctor administered drugs to stabilise his condition whilst the fire service removed the roof of the car. The man was then carefully extricated from the vehicle and fully immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. The doctor travelled with the man to hospital.
“The driver of the car, a man also believed to be in his 20s, suffered no apparent serious injuries but was disoriented and sick on scene. Given the damage caused to the vehicle and his condition the man was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital as a precaution for further checks.”
