The crash took place shortly after 2am on Monday in Bewdley Hill, just outside the town centre.

A woman was injured in the crash and was treated by paramedics at the scene after they happened to pass the scene. The extent of her injuries are not known.

The road was closed for sometime due to the damaged lamppost, while highways officers and Western Power Distribution attended the scene.

A spokesman for West Mercia Police said: "Officers were called at around 2.15am following reports from West Midlands Ambulance Service that one of their vehicles had come across a single-vehicle road traffic collision on Bewdley Hill, in Kidderminster.

"The car had collided with a lamppost making it unsafe and quite a lot of oil had leaked onto the road.

"The driver of the vehicle had sustained injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

"The car could not be removed due to the damage to the lamppost and the road was blocked towards Bewdley on Bewdley Hill at the Sutton Park Road junction while teams from Highways and Western Power attending the scene.

"The road is now reported to be fully open and our log has been cleared."


A Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service spokesman added: "One crew from Kidderminster called at 02:23am on December 30 to a car in collision with a lamppost on Bewdley Hill, Kidderminster.

"The vehicle was made safe as electrical cables were in contact with the car. The road was partially closed with the area cordoned off.

"Police and ambulance also attended with one female casualty handed over to the care of the ambulance service."
