Tuesday 24th December 2013 – 6.09am – Murray MacGregor.

A woman has died and a man has been seriously hurt after a crash to the west of Shrewsbury.

The incident happened on the A458, about a mile to the west of Dinky’s Dinah in Ford. Weather conditions at the time were very difficult.

A rapid response vehicle, two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the scene after multiple 999 calls at just after 9.30pm on Monday evening.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found 3 cars at the scene. Firefighters were undertaking life support on a woman in one of the cars. Sadly despite all efforts, it was not possible to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene. A man from the same car was assessed but was uninjured.

“A man in his 30s from a second car was trapped for over half an hour. He had suffered facial, hip and leg injuries. He was transported to the major trauma centre at University Hospital North Staffordshire with the MERIT doctor travelling with the crew.

“A woman in the third car was uninjured.”
