A woman has died and a child has been seriously injured following an RTC in Shropshire this morning.
The crash occurred on the B5061, Uckington, near to the Horseshoe Inn, Shrewsbury at around 11.30am. Two ambulances, two paramedic officers, two BASICS Doctors and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had left the road, been in collision with a tree and had come to rest in a ditch.
“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the woman driving the car and she was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The passenger in the car, a boy believed to be eight years old, suffered multiple serious leg injuries and suspected abdominal injuries and was trapped in the vehicle. The boy received emergency treatment whilst in the car and was then carefully extricated by the emergency services.
“The boys condition was stabilised and he was airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further emergency treatment.
“The hospital had been pre alerted to the childs arrival and his injuries. Unfortunately the boys injuries were considered very serious.”
