Worcester Editorial 30th Apr, 2024   0

A MAN has been arrested after a fatal collision in Worcester last night (April 29).

Ambulance staff were called to Pershore Lane, Warndon at around 10.23pm on Monday.

Four ambulances, a paramedic officer, a specialist paramedic and the Air Ambulance Critical Care Car from Strensham were sent to the scene.

Crews found two cars had been involved in a collision, with one of the vehicles ending up on its side.

The driver of the car on its side, a man, was in critical condition and was removed from the vehicle.

Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but the man was later pronounced dead at the scene.




The family of the man, who was in his 50s, have been informed of his passing.

The four patients from the other car, all men, were already out of the vehicle when crews arrived.


They were all treated at the scene for ‘potentially serious injuries’ before being taken to Worcester Royal Hospital for further treatment.

A 24-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and being unfit through drink or drugs.

West Mercia Police have now appealed for witnesses.
