A 19-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving after he was involved in a crash in south Herefordshire last night (Wednesday).

It involved a red Ford Fiesta and a Volvo lorry on the A4137 at Thorn Crossroads in Glewstone, near Ross-on-Wye, at around 6.20pm.

A teenage girl was airlifted to Bristol Southmead Hospital with serious and potential life-threatening injuries. 


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

The crash caused the A4137 to be closed for several hours, with no access from the A49.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or has any information or dash-cam footage which may help with the investigation is asked to contact the Hereford Operational Policing unit on 101 (extension 7722068).
