A WOMAN and a toddler were injured this morning when a car left the road and crashed into nearby underpass in Droitwich.

It happened about 9.15am neat Thatcher’s Place.

The woman, who was in her 30s, was already out of the vehicle and was being attended to by a passing nurse after suffering a serious ankle injury. She also had back pain and had hurt her nose.

After being immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar, she was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further treatment.

The two-year-old boy suffered minor facial injuries. After receiving treatment for those, he was also taken to the same hospital.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokesperson said: “Thankfully the child was in an appropriate child safety seat and was fully restrained.

Hr confirmed two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

‚ÄúConsidering the circumstances of the crash it is extremely fortunate that no one suffered more serious injuries and no one was walking in the underpass at the time it happened,” added the spokesperson.
