One man has died and three others have been taken to hospital following a collision between a car and two vans near Shrewsbury this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident near to Hardwick Motor Services on the A49 just north of Hadnall, shortly after 3.15pm. Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a rapid response paramedic attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car and two vans that had been involved in a significant collision.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the driver of the car, a man, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“There were two further patients in one of the vans, a man and a woman, both thought to be in their 60s.

“The woman was treated for neck and back pain and immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board. The man had suffered arm injuries. They were both transported to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by the same ambulance.

“From the second van, a man in his 20s was treated for neck and back pain. He was also immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to the same hospital.

“All three patients from the two vans managed to free themselves from their vehicles and remained conscious throughout.”
