Three women have been taken to hospital after a road traffic collision in Worcestershire this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Worcester Road in Shenstone, Kidderminster, at 11.30am (Wednesday). Three ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When emergency services arrived they found two cars which had been involved in a serious collision. The two drivers and a passenger from one car all required assessment by ambulance staff.
“The driver of one car, a woman in her 50s, sustained suspected serious injuries to her chest, pelvis and abdomen. She was given advanced pain relief before the team of ambulance staff worked carefully to immobilise her with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic binder to stabilise her injuries. The woman was then taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
“The driver of the second car, a woman in her 40s, also suffered multiple serious injuries which required advanced trauma care. Ambulance staff administered pain relief to help ease her discomfort before working carefully to immobilise her before she was alerted by land ambulance to the same major trauma centre.
“The third woman, a passenger from one of the cars, suffered less serious injuries but still required further assessment at Worcestershire Royal Hospital.”
