THERE were two crashes in the space of just five minutes on a busy Hereford road yesterday (Wednesday).

Emergency services were first called to the A4103, near the junction of the B4214 at Bishop's Frome, at around 3.40pm after two cars crashed.

All three men were assessed by the ambulance crew; however, none chose to go to hospital so were discharged at the scene. 

Two fire engines - one from Bromyard and one from Malvern - were also called to the scene. 


A spokesperson for Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said the incident involved a car and van, which were made safe by crews. The police were also in attendance. 

Meanwhile, just minutes later, another two-car crash happened on the A4103.

This one was by the Evesbatch turn off near Fromes Hill, which is just two miles from the other crash.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service said the ambulance from the first incident was sent as a second crew. 

"Both cars had suffered extensive front end damage," he said.

"On arrival, ambulance staff found two men, one from each car.," said the spokesperson. 

"Both were assessed at the scene before being taken to Hereford County hospital for further assessment."
