A woman, who was trapped in a car for an hour, has been taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres after a collision between a car and a lorry last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Cannock Road in Featherstone at 8.35pm and sent one ambulance, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a woman, believed to be in her 20s, who was trapped in the passenger seat.

“Ambulance staff worked closely with the fire service to free the patient, a process which took about an hour.
