A 19-YEAR-OLD woman and 20-year-old man remain in a critical condition in hospital after a three vehicle crash which closed Parsonage Way in both directions.
An appeal for witnesses has been launched following the incident on the A4440 on Tuesday (August 10) at about 5.50pm when a beige Fiat 500, a blue Mini Cooper and a white Mann breakdown recovery truck collided.
On arrival, ambulance crews found two cars with significant damage and the lorry further down the road.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said; “There were two people trapped in the first car. The woman driver was rapidly extricated and given advanced trauma care at the scene before being taken to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with serious injuries. The doctor and critical care paramedic from the Strensham aircraft travelled with the patient.
“The man in the front passenger seat also had to be extricated. He was taken by ambulance to the same hospital as a precaution due to the serious nature of the crash.
“The man driving the second car had managed to get out himself. He was assessed at the scene for potentially serious injuries. He was taken by ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
The lorry driver was uninjured and officers are now appealing for information from the public including dashcam footage.
Operational Patrol Unit Sgt Matt Digger said: “Unfortunately two people remain in critical condition, and a third remains in hospital with serious injuries not thought to be life threatening.
“We are especially keen to see any dashcam footage from the area at the time of the incident. If you have any information please report it via our website or 101.”
