BULLSEYE TO WINDSCREEN Thursday 26th November 2015 – 11.15am
The driver of a 4x4 pick up escaped serious injury, despite leaving a ‘bullseye’ fracture to the windscreen after a two vehicle head on collision.
The crash happened opposite the turn into the car park at Millennium Woods on Pershore Road in Stoulton, Worcestershire at about 8.45am this morning (Thursday).
Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene. The two critical care paramedics from the Midlands Air Ambulance at Strensham were also responded in a rapid response vehicle due to the poor weather conditions.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car and a 4x4 pick up with considerable front end damage.
“Thankfully, a number of cars that had stopped due to a car waiting to turn into the car park hadn’t been damaged.
“The driver of the car, a man estimated to be in his 30s, had suffered a fractured right leg. He had to be helped out of the car by ambulance staff and after treatment at the scene, was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital with one of the aircrew paramedics travelling with the ambulance.
“The driver of the 4x4 had managed to get out of the vehicle. He was complaining of pain in his ankle and also had probable fractures to his ribs. He was taken to the same hospital.”
