Man dies in collision between lorry and bus

Wednesday 17th January 2018 – 4.20pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.

One man has died and a second has been taken to hospital following a collision between a lorry and bus this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Warwick Road in Stratford-upon-Avon just before 1.45pm and sent two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered two patients, one in each vehicle.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the lorry driver and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The bus driver, a man believed to be in his 50s, was trapped as a result of the damage to his vehicle and with the help of the fire service was cut free after about 45 minutes.

“He was carefully monitored throughout by ambulance staff and treated for a leg injury before being transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by land ambulance.”
