TWO teenagers were sent to hospital after a serious crash involving a car and a lorry near Ross-on-Wye last night (Wednesday).

All emergency services - including the air ambulance - were called to the A4137 at Glewstone at around 6.25pm.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "An ambulance, paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews discovered a car and a lorry had been involved in a collision.


"A female patient from the car was treated by ambulance staff for serious injuries before being airlifted to Southmead Hospital in Bristol for further treatment.

"Two other patients were assessed by medics but did not require treatment and were discharged at the scene."

Five fire engines were also sent to the scene. 

A Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: "A teenage male casualty had been extricated from a vehicle before the arrival of the fire service and a female teenage casualty was still in the vehicle.

"The teenage female casualty was handed over to the air ambulance service to be transported to hospital while the male casualty was handed over to the ambulance service, who attended along with police. The road was closed in both directions by the police."
