A collision involving a coach, three cars and a van left three people injured, two of whom required hospital treatment, this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A41 in Shifnal, near to the junction with Chatwell Lane, shortly before 2.50pm and sent three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team and a Community First Responder to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “One of the patients, a woman in her 40s, had to be cut free from her car with the help of the fire service as a result of the damage caused in the collision.

“She was assessed by ambulance crews and treated for back pain, given pain relief and immobilised before being taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by land ambulance.

“The driver of the van, a man believed to be in his 20s, was treated for minor chest and head injuries and also taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

“The third patient, a man believed to be in his 40s, was from a second car and treated for knee pain before being discharged on scene.

“Everyone else was uninjured in the incident including the driver of the coach who was the sole occupant on his vehicle.”
