Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman, said: “On arrival, crews found a BMW estate that had ended up in a hedge and a white Ford Fiesta with significant front-end damage.

“The 18-year-old woman driving the Fiesta had to be cut free from the wreckage.  She had fractures to both legs and her left arm; she was not fully conscious.  She was immobilised had splints applied and was then airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire by the Cosford aircraft.

“The front seat passenger in the BMW was a 34-year-old woman.  She had facial, leg and wrist injuries.  She was immobilised and taken on blue lights to the same major trauma centre by land ambulance.

“A seven-year-old girl in the back of the car had neck and abdominal pain and facial injuries.  She was also immobilised, given pain relief and taken on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  A critical care paramedic from the Strensham aircraft travelled with the ambulance crew.

“The man driving the BMW was unhurt and travelled with the child to hospital.”
