A man has died following an RTC in Kidderminster this morning.

The crash occurred on the A449, between the VOSA test centre and the Black bridge at around 11.45am.  An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, two paramedic officers, and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a van and a lorry that had been in a serious collision.

“The man driving the van suffered multiple serious injuries and was trapped in the vehicle.

“Advanced life support was carried out at the scene by medics and resuscitation attempts continued as the patient was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Major Trauma Unit where a trauma team were on standby.

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of everyone at the scene and at hospital, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead shortly after arriving at hospital.”
