Two people have been fortunate to escape much more serious injuries after two cars crashed and set on fire in Worcester this morning.

The incident occurred on the B4203, near Stanford Bridge at around 8.00am.  A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had crashed and set on fire.  Fortunately, the occupants of the cars were already out of the vehicles and at a safe distance after being helped by other motorists.

“The two woman, one from each car, received treatment at the scene by medics for their injuries.  A woman in her late 50’s was treated for a suspected fractured ankle, and a woman in her early 20’s received treatment for a shoulder injury.

“After treatment, both were transferred by ambulance to Worcester Royal Hospital for further treatment.

“Fortunately, the occupants of the cars were able to escape the wreckage before the fire really took hold.”
