Malvern Gazette: Woman cut free from car Woman cut free from car

A WOMAN was trapped in the wreckage of a car for over 90 minutes after it was involved in a two-car crash near Worcester.

Firefighters battled against heavy rain and wind to free the 25-year-old woman, who suffered serious multiple injuries.

She was trapped by her legs in a black Renault Clio which had been in collision in a bend on a hill at the A38 at Severn Stoke at about 10.20pm on Monday.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Ambulance staff worked with firefighters for over 90 minutes to free the woman.

“The appalling weather conditions made the task even more difficult as the roof and dashboard were removed.”

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service rushed to the scene to cut the woman free from her car.

She was said to be suffering serious multiple injuries and was immobilised by paramedics and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

The driver of a blue Mercedes A140, a 19-year-old woman, was knocked unconscious by the crash and was trapped for about 40 minutes.

A spokesman said there appeared to be no injuries but she was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital as a precaution.

The ambulance spokesman added: ”Given the complexity of the incident, there was some excellent joint working between all three emergency services at the scene."

Police closed the road until 3.30am on Tuesday.
