Tuesday 16th June 2015 – 11.30am – John Hawker.
A woman and a child have been involved in an unusual crash this morning which saw their car leave the road and crash into a nearby underpass.
The incident happened near Thatchers Place in Droitwich Spa at around 9.15am. Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find the car which had left the road, travelled around 50 yards and crashed down into the underpass below.
“The driver of the car, a woman in her 30’s, was already out of the vehicle and being assisted by a passing nurse. The woman had suffered a serious ankle injury, back pain and a nose injury.
“She received emergency treatment from ambulance crews including pain relief and being immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar.
“The woman was then transferred to Worcester Royal Hospital by ambulance for further treatment.
“The passenger in the car, a boy believed to be two years old, suffered minor facial injuries and also received treatment from paramedics before being transferred to hospital. Thankfully the child was in an appropriate child safety seat and fully restrained.
“Considering the circumstances of the crash it is extremely fortunate that no one suffered more serious injuries and no one was walking in the underpass at the time it happened.”
