Two fatalities in Worcestershire RTC

Jordan Eggington – Tuesday 23rd February 2021 – 10.00am.

A man and woman have sadly died after a multi-vehicle collision in Worcestershire yesterday afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 4:40pm on Monday to reports of an RTC involving six vehicles at the junction of the A435 and Hill Lane in Wythall. Due to the nature of the incident, multiple resources were sent to the scene including the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, the West Midlands CARE Team, three land ambulances and several paramedic officers.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived at the scene to find a serious road traffic collision, with two occupants from one of the vehicles in a critical condition.

“The critical care teams from the air ambulances split up to deliver advanced trauma care to the man and woman. Unfortunately though, despite everyone’s best efforts, nothing could be done to save them and both patients were confirmed dead at the scene.

“One man from another vehicle was treated for serious injuries and was conveyed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on blue lights and sirens for further treatment.

“A fourth patient, also a man, was treated at the scene for minor injuries before being conveyed to the QE in Birmingham.

“The fifth and final patient was assessed by ambulance crews and discharged at the scene.”
