A TEENAGER was cut free from a car and airlifted to hospital after a crash in Herefordshire.

The A4110 at Bush Bank in Herefordshire was closed for several hours on October 1 after emergency crews were called to the scene at 2.40pm.

On arrival, a fire service spokesperson said, crews from Kingsland and Hereford fire stations found two small vehicles had been involved in a crash on the busy main road.

An ambulance, paramedic officer, BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were also sent to the scene, an ambulance service spokesperson confirmed.

A teenage male casualty was medically trapped in one of the vehicles and was released using hydraulic equipment.

The driver who had been cut free from his care was treated by ambulance staff for serious but not life-threatening injuries before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further treatment.

Two patients from the second car, men in their 50s and 20s, were treated for minor injuries by medics but did not wish to go to hospital and were given self-care advice and discharged at the scene.


Both vehicles were made safe by fire service personnel, while the A4110 was closed in both directions and Highways were requested to attend due to fuel and engine oil on the carriageway. Police were also in attendance.

The road was reopened on Sunday evening.
