A woman has suffered serious injuries following a serious RTC in Shropshire.

The crash occurred on the A41, near Market Drayton at just before 11.15am.  Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a Medic on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in a significant collision.  Both vehicles had sustained substantial damage.

“The driver of one car, a woman believed to be on her 50’s, suffered serious leg injuries and was trapped in the vehicle.  The woman received emergency treatment at the scene, including pain relief and her condition was stabilised.  She was then extricated from the car with the assistance of the fire service.  She was trapped for around 45 minutes.

“Once released the woman was airlifted to University Hospital North Staffordshire Major Trauma unit for further assessment and emergency treatment.

“Thankfully, the woman’s injuries were not considered life threatening.

“The man driving the second vehicle was checked over at the scene but did not require further treatment.”
