Four people have been treated by ambulance crews following a road traffic collision in Alcester today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on the A46 in Redhill shortly after 1.55pm this afternoon.
Three ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance officer were sent to the scene. The police and fire service were also in attendance.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival at the scene crews found a mini bus and two cars that had been in collision.
“The driver of the mini bus, a man, was trapped in the vehicle for a period of time. Ambulance crews worked closely with firefighters to safely extricate the man from the vehicle. Once freed, the casualty was treated for a knee injury and taken to Warwick hospital.
“Two occupants had been travelling in one of the cars when the collision happened. The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 60’s, was treated at the scene for an arm injury. The passenger of the vehicle, a woman of a similar age, was treated for a suspected fractured sternum. Both occupants were conveyed to Warwick Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
“The third vehicle, a car, was found to have left the carriageway with its rear end in a ditch. The driver, a woman, was treated at the scene for seat belt injuries and a suspected fractured ankle. Ambulance crews later conveyed the woman believed to be in her 30s to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch.”
