Two seriously injured drivers have been cut free from their vehicles and taken to hospital after a crash in Stourbridge this morning.

A silver VW Golf and a red flat-bed truck collided head-on at the junction of Enville Street and the A458 in Wollaston, near the Katie Fitzgerald pub, at 8.44am on Wednesday.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a critical care paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, with a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic on board, were in attendance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The driver of each vehicle was quickly assessed by ambulance staff and both were found with serious injuries.

“The driver of the lorry (flat-bed truck), a man, received treatment by ambulance staff for his serious injuries whilst fire colleagues helped to extricate him from the vehicle.

“Once released, the man was conveyed by land ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency care.

“The driver of the car, a man, was also extricated with help from the fire service and received trauma care on scene by ambulance staff before being conveyed on blue lights to the same hospital for further trauma treatment.”

Photos from the scene show the silver car without its right-hand side doors.

Police crash investigators also attended the scene.

West Midlands Police said the two drivers, both men aged 60 and 40, in a serious but stable condition in hospital.

Officers are now appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward. Anyone who can help is asked to contact the police quoting log number 695 of 24 November.
