Friday 9th September 2016 – 8.45am – Claire Brown.

A woman was airlifted to a major trauma centre following a two car collision in Worcestershire yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A46 Evesham Bypass, Evesham at 6.20pm on Thursday afternoon. Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The emergency services arrived to find one car which had ended up in a field following a serious collision.

“One driver, a 48-year-old woman, was trapped in the wreckage and, upon assessment by ambulance staff, they suspected she had suffered chest and pelvic injuries. Once pain relief had been administered to the woman, ambulance staff worked with the fire service to extricate and immobilise her. Once stable, the woman was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“From the other car, a man in his 20s required treatment by ambulance staff for minor injuries before being taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. A woman in her 40s was also assessed but was discharged on scene.”
