AN APPEAL has been launched after a woman suffered serious injuries to head and leg after being hit by a car on Astwood Road.

Emergency services were called to the busy Rainbow Hill road at 6.25pm on Monday (February 10) after the pedestrian was struck by a white Seat Leon.

An ambulance, the Midlands Air Ambulance critical care car and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene to treat the woman before taking her to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Insp Lloyd Cresswell from West Mercia Police said: “Sadly, a woman has sustained injuries to her head and her leg during the collision on Astwood Road, in Worcester.

“While investigations are on-going to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident, we are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or has dash-cam footage of the incident to please come forward.”

Drivers were urged to avoid the area following the incident and find alternative routes away from the busy city road.

Belmont Road, the bottom of Tunnel Hill, Lansdowne Road and Mill Lane were all closed for a period of time while emergency services were on the scene.

Police re-opened the roads just before midnight.

Anyone with information or dash cam footage is asked to 101, quoting incident number 626s 10 February 2020.
