Car collides with tree in Evesham

Tuesday 8th January 2019 – 8.55am – Claire Brown.

A car which collided with a tree yesterday evening in Evesham left two people injured, one seriously.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Broadway Road, Evesham at 7.15pm last night (Monday). Two ambulances, a critical care car from the Midlands Air Ambulance air based in Strensham and a second critical care car from the Air Ambulance Service responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived the driver of the car, a man, had managed to self-extricate from the vehicle. He had suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Alexandra Hospital for further checks. The passenger, a woman, sustained serious injuries which required ambulance crews and the air ambulance medics to administer advanced trauma care on scene. They worked closely with the fire service to carefully extricate her from the car before she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for specialist trauma care.”
