A MAN has died and two other people have been injured after the car they were in collided with a lamppost in Worcester in the early hours of this morning.

The 20-year-old man, who has not yet been named, was in the car alongside the driver, a 20-year-old male, and two female passengers aged 16 and 17.

The accident happened in Bilford Road, Perdiswell, Worcester, near the junction with the recycyling centre, shortly before 2.30am this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called and three ambulances, two responder paramedics and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

A spokeswoman for the service said: “Crews arrived to find a car which had left the road and collided with a lamppost.

“One passenger, a man, was in cardiac arrest. He was pulled from the wreckage before ambulance staff and the doctor commenced CPR at the roadside. Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“Two other passengers were treated by ambulance staff at the scene. One suffered no apparent injuries whilst the other sustained suspected wrist and ankle fractures.

"Due to the nature of the incident, both were fully immobilised before being taken by land ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“The driver of the car, a man, was assessed by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment.”

One person was arrested as a result of the incident.
