Worcestershire saw a four-vehicle crash on Tuesday, at 4:15 pm, on the A4133 at Ombersley. The accident, which took place about 100 yards from Ombersley First School, involved two cars, a van and a 4x4 vehicle. Five people have been hospitalised.
According to a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman: “There were 3 people in the 4x4. The male driver was unhurt, a woman in the front passenger seat complained of severe neck and shoulder pain. Her daughter, thought to be aged in her 20s, was suffering pelvic pain. Both women were taken to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch”.
Two fire engines from Droitwich arrived first at the scene, calling for a third engine from Worcester.
The van was driven by a 38-year-old man, who was trapped in his vehicle by the accident. Firefighters cut him free and he was airlifted to Worcestershire Royal Hospital to be treated for spinal injuries.
One of the cars involved was driven by a 33-year old male, who suffered a concussion. He was also cut free by emergency services and taken over land to Worcestershire Royal.
The last car was driven by a woman, who was not seriously injured in the accident but who was nevertheless taken to Alexandra Hospital as a precautionary measure.
