THREE people have been taken to hospital, two to a major trauma centre, after a serious crash involving two cars and a lorry.

The incident happened at about 5.50pm yesterday [August 11] on the A4440, Parsonage Way in the Warndon area of Worcester, and we reported at the time emergency services were at the scene of a 'police incident'.

This morning, a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance crews found two cars with significant damage and a lorry further down the road.

“There were two people trapped in the first car. The woman driver was rapidly extricated and given advanced trauma care at the scene before being taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with serious injuries. The doctor and critical care paramedic from the Strensham aircraft travelled with the patient.

“The man in the front passenger seat also had to be extricated. He was taken by ambulance to the same hospital as a precaution due to the serious nature of the crash. His injuries were less serious.

“The man driving the second car had managed to get out himself. He was assessed at the scene for potentially serious injuries. He was taken by ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

“The lorry driver was not injured.”
