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 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.”
