A woman, whose car went off the road and ended up more than 50ft down a hillside, has miraculously escaped serious injury.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the B4232 Jubilee Driver in Upper Colwall, Malvern, at 8.30am this morning. An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended along with police and fire colleagues.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car on its side more than 50ft down a steep hillside being secured by the fire service. The car’s fall had been broken by a tree which prevented it going any further down the hillside.
“The driver, a woman, managed to self-extricate from the car through the sunroof with help from the fire service. The woman was given a full assessment by ambulance staff and, other than some pain in her side, found she had escaped serious injury. She was given treatment on scene before she was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further checks.”
