UPDATE: Man dies following crash near Sixways
A MAN was killed and another seriously injured in a two-car crash in Worcester today.
Police, firefighters, two ambulances and two air ambulances were called to the crash on the A4538 Pershore Lane near the Sixways Stadium in Worcester just after 2.15pm this afternoon.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars which had been involved in a significant collision.
“One man was trapped in the wreckage in one car and was in a serious condition. Whilst ambulance crews began treating the man his condition deteriorated and he went into cardiac arrest.
“Ambulance staff worked as a team to administer advanced life support in an attempt to resuscitate the man. Sadly, despite the best efforts of ambulance crews and the medic, nothing could be done to save man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“A 59 year old man from the second car was also trapped and had sustained fractures to his ankles as well as injuries to his hip, wrist and pelvis. Once the man had been stabilised with pain relief, ambulance staff worked with the fire service to carefully extricate him from the car.
“After around 30 minutes, the man was released from the wreckage. He was immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and leg splints before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
The road is closed in both directions, causing congestion at the Sixways roundabout.
Both cars are thought to have been Jaguars.
A street light was also severely damaged in the crash.
