A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said:
“On arrival crews found a car and a 4×4 vehicle that had suffered severe damage and was on its roof. Tragically, it was not possible to save the life of the driver of the car, a man, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
A 62 year old woman who was the front seat passenger was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by ambulance. The 76 year old man, who was the only occupant of the 4×4, suffered head and facial injuries.

A motorcyclist has died following a crash in Halesowen, in Birmingham, on Sunday morning (30 October). The incident happened on Manor Way at around 9.30am.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said:
Ambulance crews arrived to find passers-by administering CPR to a motorcyclist, a man, who had been involved in a collision.
Ambulance staff immediately took over resuscitation efforts and commenced advanced life support.
Sadly, the motorcyclist couldn’t be saved and he was confirmed dead on scene.
Ambulance paramedics are calling for tougher sentences in court to deal with people who attack them. They say more defendants should be sent to jail as a deterrent.
