Three people have been treated by ambulance staff and subsequently taken to hospital following a three-vehicle road traffic collision in Droitwich this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident, which took place outside the Chataeu Impney Hotel shortly after 5.15pm, and sent two ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered three vehicles that had been in collision, two cars and a van.

“There were three patients in total, two from one of the cars and one from the other car, a people carrier. Nobody travelling in the van sustained any injuries.

“From the first car, a woman in her 40s was trapped as a result of her injuries and crews had to work carefully with the fire service to get her out, after the roof was cut off the vehicle.

“She was treated for leg injuries, immobilised with the use of a spinal board and taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch by land ambulance.

“The second patient from the car, a female teenager, was treated for a wrist injury and taken to the same hospital by land ambulance.

“From the people carrier, a man in his 30s was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and also taken to the Alexandra Hospital by land ambulance as a precaution.”
