Two occupants of a car have died following a collision with a lorry this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A49 near to Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury, just before 10.50am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had suffered significant damage in the collision with a man and woman inside, both in cardiac arrest.
“Bystanders were already carrying out CPR which ambulance staff took over.
“However, despite the best efforts of everyone concerned, it sadly became apparent that nothing could be done to save either patient and they were confirmed dead at the scene.
“The driver of the lorry, a man, was treated for the effects of shock and discharged at scene.”
