Monday 14th September 2015 – 7.05pm – Murray MacGregor.

Two people have been injured after an RTC that saw both cars roll over and leave a woman trapped for over an hour.

A rapid response vehicle was at the scene of the crash within 6 minutes of the 999 call. It was backed up by two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham.

On arrival, crews found two cars that had been badly damaged. The drivers were both still in their vehicles.

“Due to the nature of the injuries, ambulance staff worked with firefighters to very gently free the woman in the Peugeot after the roof had been taken off the car.

“She was treated for chest injuries, a suspected fractured pelvis, and a fracture dislocation to the ankle. The woman, who was in her 30s, was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being airlifted to a major trauma centre in Bristol due to poor weather in Birmingham.

“The driver of the Vauxhall, a man in his 30s, was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by land ambulance with chest and shoulder injuries after firefighters removed the door of his car to allow ambulance staff access.

“The crash near the Wellington Inn at Chances Pitch, Colwall near Malvern happened at about 4.15pm on Monday afternoon and closed the road for a period while emergency services worked at the scene.”
