Tractor and car collides in Kidderminster

Thursday 27th September 2018 – 9.30am – Claire Brown.

A man and a woman needed hospital treatment after their car was involved in a collision with a tractor in Kidderminster yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A456, near Rock Sports Youth Football Club in Callow Hill, Kidderminster, at 5.15pm yesterday (Wednesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and a BASICS doctor from Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS) responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car and a tractor which had been involved in a serious collision.

“A man, the passenger from the car, sustained multiple serious injuries in the collision. Ambulance staff worked with the fire service on scene to carefully extricate him from the car. The man was given pain relief, his wounds were dressed and he was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further trauma care.

“The driver of the car, a woman, had managed to get out of the car unaided and was described as ‘walking wounded’ on scene. Ambulance staff assessed the woman and found she had sustained a head and hand injury. She was given treatment on scene before being taken by land ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

“The tractor driver, a man, was assessed by ambulance staff but was uninjured and didn’t require hospital treatment.”
