FIVE people were hurt - two seriously - after a crash in north Herefordshire.

A grey Audi A1 and a silver Land Rover Discovery crashed on the A4110 at around 7.15pm on Friday (April 14). 

All three emergency services were called to the scene, including three ambulances, two paramedic officers, two air ambulance critical care cars and a Community First Responder. 


A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "On arrival, crews discovered two cars had been involved in a collision and that there were five patients.

"With the assistance of the fire service, a male patient was cut free from one of the cars and treated for potentially serious injuries by ambulance staff before being taken to University Hospital Birmingham for further treatment.

"A female patient from the same vehicle was taken to the same hospital with serious injuries after receiving medical treatment at the scene whilst a second female patient, also from the same vehicle, was treated by crews for injuries not believed to be serious before being conveyed to Hereford County Hospital for further treatment.


"The occupants of the second vehicle, a man and a woman, were treated for minor injuries by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment and were discharged at the scene."

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service sent two crews to the scene - one each from Kingsland and Leominster. 

A spokesperson said: "The incident involved two vehicles and there were five casualties, three of whom had to be extricated from their vehicle using hydraulic cutting gear.

"The vehicles and the scene were made safe by fire service personnel. All of the casualties were handed over to the ambulance service who attended along with police.

"Crews also assisted police with lighting the scene. The incident was marked as pending closure at 11.15pm."

West Mercia Police said that the people taken to hospital were in the Audi.
