A lucky escape from three-car collision


Wednesday 11th June 2014 – 5.30pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.

There was a lucky escape for five road users earlier this afternoon when despite a three-vehicle collision leaving one car on its roof, nobody suffered any serious injuries.

The incident happened on Worcester Road, Pinvin, shortly after 3pm and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival we discovered three cars that had been in collision, one of which had come to rest on its roof.

“Quite incredibly, and fortunately for all involved, nobody suffered any serious injuries in the incident, although three people were taken to hospital.

“Following assessment from crews, it was discovered that a male and female who were travelling together in the same car had suffered minor injuries and as a result they were taken to Worcester Royal Hospital.

“Due to damage caused to his car when leaving the road in the incident, a third patient, had to be cut free from his vehicle. Crews worked closely with the fire service to immobilise him with the use of a spinal board before he was carefully cut free from the car. He was also taken to Worcester Royal Hospital with minor injuries.

“The car that had overturned contained two elderly patients, a male and a female. They managed to free themselves from the vehicle and after being checked over by ambulance staff were discharged at the scene.”
