"Crews used Holmatro cutting equipment to deal with the entrapment and release the casualty.

"Working alongside West Midlands Ambulance Service, the Midlands Air Ambulance and the Wales Air Ambulance multiple casualties were provided with trauma care before being conveyed to hospital.

"The incident was left with Gwent Police and West Mercia Police for collision investigation."

"We wish all those involved a speedy recovery."

The road was immediately closed, with a diversion put in place.
