A man has been airlifted to hospital following a collision involving a car and a van in Malvern earlier this evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Poolbrook Road shortly before 6.00pm (Thursday). Two ambulances, two responder paramedics and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a van and car which had been involved in a collision.
“The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 70s, sustained extensive bruising to his shoulder as well as pain in his chest and abdomen. The man was given oxygen and pain relief before crews immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board. The man was then airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
“The driver of the van suffered less serious injuries but was also immobilised as a precaution by crews before being taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by land ambulance.”
