Two people have died, and two ambulance staff have been injured following a road traffic collision in Herefordshire this morning.

An ambulance crew from West Midlands Ambulance Service was involved in a road traffic collision with a car on the A49 near to the junction of the A4137 just outside of Ross on Wye, Herefordshire at 6.11am (Sunday). The ambulance was not responding to a 999 call at the time of the collision. Four ambulances, three paramedic officers and an emergency doctor from Mercia Accident Rescue Service (MARS) responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The two occupants of the car sadly died at the scene.

“Two ambulance staff received treatment by ambulance colleagues on scene for injuries not believed to be serious before being taken to Hereford County Hospital for further assessment.

The Trust will work closely with Officers from West Mercia Police on the investigation which is already underway.”
