A TWO-CAR crash in Worcester has left one driver trapped and the other with multiple injuries.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A443 Hallow Road at 6.45am this morning (Tuesday) after an off-duty paramedic came across the collision and stopped to help.

A spokeswoman said: “Two vehicles had been involved in a collision which had left one driver mechanically trapped inside the wreckage. The man, believed to be 18, was conscious and breathing but had sustained multiple injuries which needed trauma care.

“Whilst ambulance staff administered pain relief and treatment, the fire service worked to release the man from the wreckage. After around 25 minutes, ambulance and fire colleagues were able to lift him out of the car. The man was fully immobilised before being taken to Worcester Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“The second driver, a man in his 60s, had managed to get out of his vehicle unaided but, upon assessment, was found to have suffered a number of injuries.

“Ambulance staff treated the man at the roadside and immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board before he was taken to the same hospital for further checks.”

Two ambulances, a responder paramedic and a paramedic area support officer were also sent to the scene.
