A major route was closed for more than two hours after a man was hit by a lorry.
It is believed the man, aged 58, got out of a car which had pulled up in a lay-by on the A449 Wolverhampton Road, at Prestwood, near Kingswinford before being hit by a lorry driving along the road near the junction with Ashwood Lower Lane on the road which runs between Wolverhampton and Kidderminster.
Staffordshire Police closed the road, between Ashwood Lower Lane and Lawnswood, following the accident at 4.30pm yesterday forcing motorists to find alternative routes.
Heavy delays were caused along the A449 and nearby roads including the A458 and A491.
The Midlands Air Ambulance was called to the scene to help paramedics already in attendance.
The man was taken to hospital for further treatment. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening and he is stabler condition.
The road was reopened at 7pm.
One worker at nearby Prestwood Petzone pet store said: “Customers have said the person had got out of their car and was somehow hit by the lorry. The air ambulance landed in one of the neighbouring fields.
“The traffic has been really busy past here. Some lorries had to turn around.”
Another motorist, who was caught up in the delays after the accident, added: “It looked serious as there seemed to be a lot of police down here. We hope the person is okay.”
