Five Hurt After Three Car Crash

Five people were hurt after a three car crash near Kidderminster on Wednesday afternoon.

It happened at the junction of the A442 and Curslow Lane at around 2.45pm. A rapid response vehicle came across the incident shortly after it had happened.  A further four ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene. A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said:

“Two of the cars had suffered significant damage, while the third was relatively undamaged. Three people were initially trapped in the wreckage of the badly damaged cars; two in one car and one in the other.

“Ambulance staff treated the patients while firefighters set about cutting them free. The most seriously injured person was a man in his 30s who was airlifted to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with a head injury, wrist fracture, a leg injury and a possible fracture to his pelvis. 

"He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place. The other four patients injured were all men; they were less serious and all went to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

“They were a 35 year old with lower back pain and left wrist pain; a 21 year old man with seat belt pain; a 24 year old with hip pain and a man in his 20s with facial and leg injuries.”
