A PERSON suffered potentially serious injuries in a crash on a Herefordshire main road this morning.

The air ambulance was called to the scene of a crash just past the A4103 junction with the A465 at Lugg Bridge near Hereford this morning.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham was joined at the scene by a Mercia Accident Rescue Service BASICS doctor and two paramedic officers after they were called to reports of a two-car crash just before 11.30am.

On arrival, crews found three patients, the spokesperson said.

Two people were treated for minor injuries and discharged at the scene, while a third person suffered potentially serious injuries and was taken to Hereford County Hospital for further treatment by land ambulance.

The road was closed for around two hours while emergency crews worked at the scene, with large queues building as vehicles were turned away.

It has since reopened.
