Monday 18th May 2015 – 6.25pm – Murray MacGregor.
Three people have been injured after a car left the road, went through a wall and collided with a tree.
The crash happened at about 11.00am on Comberton Road near the junction with Chester Road in Kidderminster.
A rapid response vehicle was on scene within four minutes of the call and was backed up by three ambulances and a paramedic area support officer.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a white Ford Fiesta that had suffered significant damage to the driver’s side; a wheel had come off and the wall and tree were badly affected.
“It was not clear exactly what had happened. The front seat passenger, a man in his 40s had to be cut free from the wreckage of the vehicle. Ambulance staff worked on him while firefighters removed the roof.
“He was complaining of lower back pain and was immobilised before being taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
“The driver, a man in his 60s had managed to get out of the vehicle himself. He was complaining of chest pain, but was otherwise unhurt. He was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for further assessment.
“The rear seat passenger, a 10 year old boy, was also able to get out of the vehicle himself. He too was complaining of chest pain, but after assessment at the scene, he was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital as a precaution.
“Given the level of damage to the car, wall and tree, it is fortunate that there were not more serious injuries.”
