A two-car collision in Worcestershire last night left a woman injured and a man needing rapid transport to hospital by air ambulance for emergency treatment.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Naunton Road in Pershore shortly before 6.45pm last night (Thursday). Two ambulances, a doctor from Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS), the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and the MERIT trauma team with a second doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars which had been involved in a serious collision. One woman in her 30s had managed to self-extricate from her vehicle prior to ambulance staff arriving and, upon assessment, was found with a head wound and various pains. She was given pain relief to ease her discomfort before being taken by land ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further treatment.
“A man in his 20s was trapped in his vehicle and needed advanced trauma care by the team. Whilst they assessed his condition and started emergency treatment, the fire service worked to extricate him from the wreckage. He was released about 30 minutes later and carefully immobilised before being airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further trauma care.”
