A man has been airlifted to a major trauma centre after a head on crash between two cars.

The incident happened on the A465 near Burley Gate in Herefordshire at around 2.05pm on Monday afternoon.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a BASICS Emergency Doctor from the MARS (Mercia Accident Rescue Service) and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found two cars that had both suffered significant front end damage.

“A 37-year-old man had to be freed from one car; he had significant pelvic pain as well as pain in his chest area.

“He was immobilised, had a pelvic binder applied and was given pain relief before being airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where doctors were awaiting his arrival.

“The 39-year-old man driving the other car appeared uninjured but due to circumstances of the crash, he was taken to Hereford County Hospital for further assessment.
