A MAN and a woman were trapped inside their cars for 45 minutes after a serious crash on the A38, Briar Hill, Droitwich about 8.20am today (Thursday).

The Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, two ambulances and a paramedic officer were all called to the scene.

A woman in her mid 20s suffered head and pelvic injuries and was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for emergency treatment.

A man in his 40s, who was driving a second car, suffered chest and back injuries and was taken to the Worcestershire Royal.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to the dual carriageway to find two cars that had been in a significant collision.

“It is believed one car had crossed over to the opposite side of the carriageway before the vehicles collided.”

He added: “Both patients received emergency treatment from ambulance medics whilst still in their vehicles.”

After being trapped for 45 minutes, they were freed by the fire service.

“Considering the damage to the vehicles, the injuries suffered could have been much more serious.” added the ambulance spokesman.
