EMERGENCY crews were called to a car fire after a crash on a busy Herefordshire road.

Firefighters from Ross-on-Wye were called to the Jays Green Gyratory at junction three of the M50 in Herefordshire at 5.15pm yesterday after receiving reports of a small vehicle on fire.

A fire service spokesperson said there had been a crash involving two vehicles and no persons were trapped, but one of the vehicles was well alight.


Crews worked to put out the flames using breathing apparatus and a hosereel jet, while one female casualty was handed over to the care of a community first responder and an off-duty doctor.

An ambulance service spokesperson said an ambulance and a paramedic officer were sent to reports of a two-car crash on the motorway slip road.

"On arrival, the two occupants of the cars were assessed and found to have minor injuries and were discharged on scene with advice," the spokesperson said.

Police also attended and the B4221 was closed pending the recovery of a vehicle.

The road was later reopened shortly after 7pm, police confirmed.
