A sixteen year old boy who suffered 'critical' injuries in a car accident on Sunday, has died.

The boy, named locally as Lewis Chambers, was involved in the incident, which happened close to West Midlands Safari Park at Seven Hills near Bewdley, just before 6.00pm on Sunday evening. West Midlands Ambulance Service deployed a rapid response vehicle, which was on scene in five minutes and was backed up by two ambulances and a senior paramedic officer.

A Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a 16 year old boy who had suffered very serious injuries.

“After treatment at the scene, he was initially taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital. A doctor from the Midlands Air Ambulance rendezvoused with the crew en-route.

After further treatment at hospital, he was transferred to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with the MERIT trauma doctor travelling with the crew.

On arrival, his condition was ‘critical’ - the car driver was uninjured, but badly shaken.
