A WOMAN was left “covered in blood” after a seven-car crash which saw one car flipped onto its roof and another land in a front garden.

The crash happened in a residential street in the early hours of the morning after two men were driving 'dangerously', say residents.

They reported hearing a loud screech before the smash, which also significantly damaged five parked cars in Linden Road, Tolladine.

A woman, who was a passenger in one of the cars, suffered relatively minor injuries and was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

Andrew Pugh, whose parked Ford Fiesta ST-Line was smashed in the crash, said: “I came out and there was a car which looked like it was going to burst into flames.

"The car was upside down on its roof and a woman was standing next to it covered in blood. The car was making a horrible noise. I thought it was going to blow.

“The crash was bad, they’re lucky to be alive. I’m just glad nobody was seriously hurt. Imagine if this had happened during the day. I am shocked that no one was killed."

Mr Pugh, 50, claims his girlfriend saw a man chasing another man up the road while holding a golf club, adding: “It was like he wanted to kill him.”

He added: “The drivers must have been going too fast to have caused all this. There are skid marks across the road. My car was up the street and it still managed to get smashed.

“One of the drivers hit a bin. There was rubbish scattered all over the road. The neighbours were all out cleaning up the rubbish this morning. There is glass everywhere, it keeps getting stuck in my shoe.”

People living in the road say they believe "the men may have been driving recklessly" in the road prior to the crash at around 2.36am on Tuesday, May 21.

A resident, who didn't want to be named, said she heard the cars crash, adding: “It was the most horrible noise. I cannot get it out of my head. I heard a girl shouting for help. I haven’t slept all night. I am knackered.”

Kris Kilcoyne-Chapman, aged 29, said he was so distressed by the crash, he had to take a day off work.

He added: “I am really shocked. I can’t believe someone was that irresponsible.

“A car almost went through my neighbour’s front window opposite. It could have gone a lot worse if it was a few hours later and people were up and about.”

Sam Kilcoyne-Chapman, aged 27 said: “Had this crash been worse, a car parked on a driveway could have gone through someone’s living room window. My neighbours now don't have a car between them as both of theirs have been written off.

“The paramedics and fire crew were amazing and dealt with everything as best they could.”

She added: “I don’t understand why the police are appealing for witnesses when we all gave our statements to them. They should have taken the men in for dangerous driving and questioned them."

West Mercia Police said: “At approximately 2.40am we received multiple reports from the public that there had been a serious RTC on Linden Road, Worcester in which a number of vehicles were involved.

“Upon our arrival it was evident that there had been an incident between two cars which had resulted in a number of other parked cars also being struck.

“Our enquiries are ongoing.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward in relation to this incident by calling 101, quoting incident number 0041s 210519.
