Woman left with serious injuries after being trapped for an hour following Dudley crash
A woman has suffered serious leg injuries after a crash left her trapped for almost an hour.
The crash happened by the Aldi supermarket in Dudley Road, Kingswinford.
Emergency services were called just after 1.30pm today where they found the 59-year-old woman trapped in her Citroen with serious leg injuries.
She had to be rushed to Russells Hall Hospital where she remains tonight.
A 48-year-old woman, who was driving the Honda involved in the crash, was also taken to the Dudley hospital after complaining of muscle injuries.
A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service, which had an ambulance on scene within seven minutes, said: “On arrival ambulance crews found a 59-year-old woman trapped in a Citroen with serious leg injuries.
“Due to her condition, a doctor was requested and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford was dispatched carrying the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic.
“Ambulance staff continued treating the woman while firefighters cut the side of the car away, so that she could be extricated.
“After a fuller assessment on the ambulance by the doctor, the woman was taken to Russells Hall Hospital as it is a vascular centre.
“The 48-year-old woman in the Honda had managed to get out of her car. She was complaining of muscular and soft tissue injuries. After assessment, she was taken to the same hospital.”
