Wednesday 4th January 2017 – 4.15pm – Murray MacGregor.

A man has died after a head on collision which also left two other people injured.

The crash happened shortly after 2.05pm this afternoon on the A458 between Cressage and Cound in Shropshire.

A paramedic area support officer was first on scene and was backed up by three ambulances and two air ambulances; the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Staffordshire.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a car and a 4×4 vehicle that had suffered severe damage.  The 4×4 was on its roof.

“Tragically, it was not possible to save the life of the driver of the car, a man, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A 62 year old woman who was the front seat passenger was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by land ambulance with rib and pelvic pain.

“The 76 year old man, who was the only occupant of the 4×4, was initially said to have been unconscious.  He had suffered head and facial injuries.  He too was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by land ambulance.”
