A man has been airlifted with extremely serious injuries following a collision between a car and a lorry this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A443 in Lindridge, Worcestershire, shortly before 6.40am and sent two ambulances, a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to discover a car and lorry that had both suffered front end damage following the collision.
“There were two patients, both still inside the car, a man and a woman who are both thought to be in their 20s.
“Ambulance staff assessed both patients before carefully working alongside the fire service to free them from the vehicle.
“The man was treated for significant chest and head injuries and once his condition had been stabilised he was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
“Unfortunately his injuries are thought to be extremely serious.
“The woman was treated for abdominal and pelvic injuries, as well as injuries to her face. She was given pain relief, immobilised with the use of a spinal board and pelvic splint and taken to Worcester Royal Hospital by land ambulance.”
