A two car crash has left five people injured in Telford this evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to near Grove Inn on Bluebell Road in Walcot shortly before 7.15pm (Friday). Five ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and two MERIT trauma doctors attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars, with a total of six occupants, which had been involved in a serious collision.
“A front seat passenger sustained facial injuries and a hand injury.
“A rear seat passenger, a 15 year old girl, sustained a collar bone injury and was administered pain relief by crews.
“The driver of one car, a 44 year old man, sustained a fractured wrist and neck pain. He was given pain relief before being immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board. All three patients were taken by land ambulances to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
“Two further patients, the second driver and a third passenger, suffered minor injuries and were taken to Princess Royal Hospital. The sixth occupant, a man, was uninjured and did not require hospital treatment.”

I am afraid I cannot provide more specific details about the patients (e.g. age and sex) or the number of occupants in each car.
