Two car drivers, one of whom has been seriously injured, had to be cut free from their cars following a road traffic collision this evening.

The collision, which took place in Guarlford Road in Malvern shortly before 5.15pm, left the two men trapped as a result of their injuries and the damage sustained to their vehicles.

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent two ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Strensham, in a rapid response vehicle, to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two cars, both of which had suffered front end damage and both with their drivers trapped inside.

“Ambulance staff assessed both patients before working alongside the fire service to carefully cut them out of their cars.

“The first man, thought to be in his 20s, was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness and was also treated for a significant lower leg injury, arm injury and a suspected pelvic injury.

“He was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and scoop stretcher, given pain relief and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. The Air Ambulance doctor travelled on the back of the ambulance to continue treatment en-route.

“The man from the second car was treated for a leg injury, also immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to Worcester Royal Hospital.”
