A woman is lucky not to have suffered far more serious injuries or worse after going under a lorry.

The incident happened at just after 4.00pm outside Holy Trinity School in Birmingham Road, Kidderminster.

A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a trauma doctor on board were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a 67 year woman who had suffered serious injuries to her legs.  Her shopping trolley was still under the lorry.

“She was immobilised and treated at the scene for the injuries to her legs and also a head injury.  After assessment and stabilisation she was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by land ambulance.

The lorry driver, whilst shaken, was uninjured.”
