A MAN has died and another seriously injured following a crash on the main Hererford to Worcester road.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a MARS Doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford were all called to the A4103 near Withington at 11.30am this morning.
A local off duty paramedic also provided assistance.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a small tanker lorry and a van that had been in a serious collision.
“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent nothing could be done to the man driving the tanker lorry and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The man driving the van, believed to be in his 30’s, suffered serious leg and pelvic injuries and also a chest injury. He received emergency treatment whilst still trapped in the van and his condition was stabilised. The man was trapped for around one hour twenty minutes.
“With the assistance of the fire service, the man was carefully extricated from the van whilst immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar.
"Following his treatment including pain relief, the man was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Major Trauma Unit for further emergency treatment.
"The hospital had a trauma team on standby awaiting his arrival.”
