Emergency services were called to the A4103 at Fromes Hill at around 6.45pm on Saturday after a blue Ford Focus and a blue Nissan Qashqai were involved in a collision. 

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said a 13-year-old boy was taken to Birmingham Children's Hospital, having sustained chest, head and leg injuries.

The second patient, a 51-year-old man, sustained a shoulder injury, abdominal pain and an arm fracture. He was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. A doctor travelled with both patients to hospital. 

A 27-year-old man, the third patient, was believed to have sustained a fractured wrist and was taken to hospital in Worcester after being given pain relief.

Firefighters from Malvern attended to help free patients from the vehicles as well as police, a MERIT trauma doctor and a paramedic officer.

The Midlands Air Ambulance also attended but was not used.
