A car driver had to be airlifted to hospital this morning (Monday) following a road traffic collision in Upton upon Severn, Worcester.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between two cars on Tewkesbury Road shortly after 10.30am. An ambulance, a rapid responder paramedic and the Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene, which landed close by on the road.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a man who was disorientated following a crash and also had a head injury.

“It is believed the man, who was in his 20s, had been knocked unconscious in the collision but had regained consciousness before ambulance crews arrived. The man was out of his vehicle.

“Ambulance crews treated the man for an open wound to the back of his head and his reduced level of consciousness. His condition was stabilised and he was air lifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further treatment.

“Nobody was injured in the second vehicle.”
