The grounds of Chateau Impney was the landing site for the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham that was called to a road traffic collision in Droitwich today.
A car had collided with a tree; an incident also attended by a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and two ambulance crews.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received the call to go to Corbett Avenue in Droitwich at 12.45pm.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The chateau grounds was the nearest location for the landing of the air ambulance and an attending fire officer then took the aircrew by road to the scene of the collision.
“A woman in her eighties who was driving the car had back pain. The fire service cut the roof off the car. She was immobilised by ambulance personnel, then taken by one of the two attending land ambulances to the air ambulance which flew her to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
“Her husband who was a passenger in the car had no visible injuries, but was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital as a precaution.”
