A van driver has been airlifted to a major trauma centre after a collision with a lorry.

The incident happened at about 10.25am on Holyhead Road, Wellington about half a mile south of the M54 motorway. 

An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a van that had suffered significant damage and had ended up in a ditch.

“Ambulance staff spent around 30 minutes working with firefighters to free the driver.

“He had suffered potentially serious injuries.  After treatment at the scene, he was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“The man driving the lorry was also assessed at the scene but was discharged after treatment.”
