Two women and a boy, 6, have died after a collision involving two cars near Worcester.

Emergency services were called at 3.07pm on Thursday 22 February, to the A44 in Spetchley, after a white BMW 3 series collided with a white Ford Mondeo.

A boy, 6, who was a passenger in the Ford Mondeo, was taken to hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival.

The driver of the Mondeo, a 26-year-old woman, and a passenger, a 39-year-old woman, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two men in the BMW 3 series were taken to hospital, one with life-threatening injuries and the other with potentially life-threatening injuries.

Five ambulances, four paramedic officers, a trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.

Two air ambulances based at Cosford and Strensham also attended the incident, with the first crew arriving within seven minutes.

Chief Inspector Mark Davidson, West Mercia Police, said: “This is an incredibly sad incident, and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the people who have sadly died. I urge anybody who witnessed the collision or may have dash-cam footage to contact the police as you may be able to help with our investigation into what happened”.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman says: “On arrival, crews discovered five patients.

“Two women and a male child from the first car were in critical conditions.

“The child received advanced life support before being conveyed on blue lights via land ambulance to Worcester Royal Hospital but sadly, shortly after arrival, it became clear he could not be saved and was confirmed dead at the scene.

“Medics administered advanced life support to both female patients but unfortunately, despite everyone’s best efforts, they could not be saved and were confirmed dead at the scene.

"Two male patients from a second car were taken to hospital in Birmingham. One has suffered life-threatening injuries, while the other had potentially life-threatening injuries.

“Ambulance staff were grateful for the assistance of police and fire colleagues at the scene as all three emergency services worked well together in what were extremely difficult circumstances.”
