Two men have been treated for serious injuries after their car collided with a tree near Pershore last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A44 between Peopleton and Drakes Broughton, near to Stonebow Farm, just before 10.50pm and sent two ambulances, a senior paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene.
“Crews arrived to discover two patients in a serious condition and lying on top of each other in their car which had collided with a tree. The car had come to rest facing the wrong way on the carriageway.
“The fire service were also in attendance and removed the roof of the car in order for ambulance staff to be fully able to access the patients.
“One of the patients, a man in his 20s, was treated for a serious head injury and a reduced level of consciousness. In order to stabilise his condition he was anaesthetised by the doctor at scene and transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
“The second patient, also a man in his 20s, was treated for a cut to his head, a broken arm and a pelvis injury. He was immobilised with the use of a pelvic splint and scoop stretcher and also taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”

There'll be one service every three hours between Worcester and Oxford, stopping at major services along the line.
Members of the RMT Union walked out a midnight over concerns about facilities and staffing on new trains. Around 70% of regular Sunday services are running.
Despite strenuous efforts we have failed to reach agreement with First Great Western on the fundamental issues at the heart of the dispute over the introduction of the new Hitachi trains. As a result the action this Sunday goes ahead. The union remains available for talks.
We have held a positive meeting with the RMT and while, disappointingly, no agreement has been reached, we plan to meet again on Monday. The brand new Super Express Trains will deliver more seats, faster journey times and more frequent journeys for our passengers. Our plans mean more train managers and customer hosts on board our trains, not less
