Updated 4:48pm Wednesday 9th July 2014 in News
Two men have been killed following a collision near Hereford last night.
The 21 year-old driver of a Citroen Saxo and his 19 year-old passenger were killed after the car was in collision with a Mercedes on the A438 at Bridge Sollars just before 10pm.
Two ambulance crews, fire crews from Hereford, plus a BASICS emergency doctor, paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and a senior paramedic officer attended.
A Welsh Ambulance Service crew that was passing also stopped to help.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Sadly one of the men was confirmed dead at the scene," said a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson.
"Resuscitation attempts were carried out on the other man and he was taken to Hereford County Hospital where he was confirmed dead."
A couple in the Mercedes were both injured.
The man, 70, was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with pelvic and chest injuries.
The 60 year-old woman who was with him, meanwhile, had pain in her right side. She was placed on a spinal board as a precaution and taken to Hereford County Hospital.
Police say they are appealing for witnesses.
They believe one of the cars involved was in company with a Suzuki motorcycle.
