TWO drivers have escaped serious injury in a head-on crash on a country road, emergency services say.

Pictures of the crash on the Malvern Road in Stanford Bishop, near Bromyard, showed extensive damage to both cars.

But Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said both drivers were out of their cars before the crew from Bromyard arrived.


The Bromyard crew said: "Thankfully no one was injured, airbags and seat belts doing their job."

The firefighters were sent to the scene after the call came in at 7.04pm on Wednesday, October 27 to make the cars safe.


"Two vehicles were made safe and an environmental grab pack with used to control around five litres of oil on the carriageway," they said.

"No persons were trapped and bother drivers had self-extricated before the arrival of the fire service. The carriageway was blocked in both directions with police also in attendance."
