West Midlands Ambulance Service has issued a statement following the collision. It says:
Crews arrived to the dual carriageway to find two cars that had been in a significant collision.
It is believed that one car had crossed over to the opposite side of the carriageway before the vehicles collided.
The woman driving one car, believed to be in her mid 20s, suffered head injuries and pelvic injuries.
The man driving the second car, believed to be in his mid 40s, suffered chest and back injuries.
Both patients received emergency treatment from ambulance medics whilst still in their vehicles.
They were then extricated with the assistance of the fire service.
Both were trapped for around 45 minutes.
The woman was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Major Trauma Unit for further emergency treatment.
The man was transferred by land ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further treatment.
Considering the damage to the vehicles, the injuries suffered could have been much more serious.
