Monday 6th February 2017 – 2.08pm – Murray MacGregor.

One woman has been anaesthetised at the scene of a serious crash.

The crash happened on the A49 at Dinmore Hill at around 8.00am this morning, Monday.

Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT Trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars that had both sustained significant damage.

“The driver of an Audi, a 19 year old woman, was in a semi-conscious state.  She was extricated from the wreckage with the assistance of the fire service and was immobilised.  On assessment she was found to have serious injuries.

“The doctor anaesthetised her before she was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“The driver of the other car, a 43 year old woman, was said to have been unconscious briefly but had come round.  She was pulled from the wreckage by passers-by who were concerned that the car might be about to go on fire.  Fortunately it didn’t.

“She was also immobilised and was treated for hand, hip and back pain.  She was taken to Hereford County Hospital for further assessment.”
