A middle aged man from the car on it’s roof was assessed by ambulance staff and was subsequently discharged at the scene.

A fourth patient, a member of the public who had gone to help those injured in the crash suffered a minor injury whilst doing so.  He was treated and discharged.

Ambulance staff did not assess anyone from the third car.
