Four people have been injured in a road traffic collision in Shropshire this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Park Street in Shifnal at around 9.45am earlier today (Saturday). Four ambulances and an area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a collision between two cars. One had reportedly been stationary at the time of the collision and had sustained significant rear end damage.
“The occupants of the stationary car, all men believed to be in their 50s, sustained neck and back pain in the collision. They had all reportedly self-extricated from the vehicle prior to crews arriving. All three were checked over by ambulance crews and immobilised with neck collars and spinal boards before being taken to hospital; one to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and two to Princess Royal Hospital.
“The driver of the second car, a woman believed to be in her 50s, was assessed by ambulance crews and was found to have sustained neck and back pain. She was fully immobilised before being taken to Princess Royal Hospital.”
