Worcester Editorial 8th Sep, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

FOUR young men were taken to hospital after a car smashed into a wall and telegraph pole in St John’s.

Emergency services, including three ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and critical care paramedic and trauma doctor, were called to Kielder Rise about 4.20am yesterday (Sunday).

On arrival, they found one man trapped in the vehicle, while four other men had already got themselves out.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived on scene to find a single vehicle that is believed to have been in collision with a telegraph pole and a wall.

“The car had been carrying five men in their late teens to early twenties at the time of the incident.

“Four of the occupants were out of the vehicle on the crew’s arrival with one man found in the car in a semi-conscious state.

“The man in the car was immobilised and extricated from the vehicle, with the assistance of the fire service. The casualty was treated for chest, back and shoulder injuries before being conveyed to hospital.

“A second man was treated for a head injury at the scene. He was also immobilised and taken to hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“Two others were walking wounded and were treated for minor injuries before being conveyed in a third ambulance to hospital.

“All four casualties were conveyed to Worcestershire Royal Hospital. The fifth occupant didn’t require any further treatment from ambulance crews.”
