Friday 9th September 2016 – 10.00am – Claire Brown.

A two car collision during rush hour in Shropshire has left two men in hospital this morning.

The incident happened on the A454 in Swancote, Bridgnorth at 6.50am (Friday). Two ambulances and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The cars were left some distance away from each other following the impact of the collision. The driver of one car, a man in his 20s, was mechanically trapped in the wreckage. Upon assessment, ambulance staff found he had sustained chest and abdominal injuries and whilst they administered treatment to the man, fire fighters worked to cut him free from the wreckage.

“Once released, the man was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board and taken by land ambulance to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further trauma care.

“The second driver, a man also in his 20s, sustained injuries to his chest and ankle. He was given pain relief by ambulance staff to help ease his discomfort whilst medics administered further trauma care. The man was then taken on blue lights by land ambulance to the same hospital.”
