A man has died and a woman has been taken to hospital following a two-car road traffic collision this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A422 between Kington and Inkberrow in Worcestershire, shortly after 7.35am. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car and the Great Western Air Ambulance attended the scene.

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

“A man in cardiac arrest was still inside one of the cars, with CPR having been commenced by off-duty medics.

“Ambulance staff helped move the man out of the car, continuing emergency treatment throughout. CPR continued as well as advanced life support being administered.

“However, sadly it became apparent nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased.

“From the second car, crews treated a woman, believed to be in her 40s, for chest and back pain. She was immobilised and given pain relief before being transported to Worcester Royal Hospital by land ambulance.”
