Wednesday 18th October 2017 – 9.40am – Murray MacGregor.

A man has died after a car collided with a tree just after a hump back bridge.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on a minor road between Hay-on-Wye and Dorstone at 9.10pm last night (Tuesday).

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a man who had suffered multiple injuries and was not breathing.

“They immediately started resuscitation attempts and transferred him on blue lights to Hereford County Hospital where attempts were made to stabilise his condition.

“Although the MERIT trauma doctor was en-route to Hereford so that the man could be transferred to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, sadly, he did not survive and he was confirmed dead at hospital in Hereford.”
