TWO women were injured and one had to be cut free from a car after a crash in Kingswinford.

Medics were called to Wolverhampton Road, just before 6.30pm on Tuesday (February 25), following a collision between two cars.

Two women, one with serious injuries, were treated by ambulance staff and taken to hospital.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival we discovered two patients, both women, following a two-car collision.

“One of the women was trapped inside her vehicle and had to be rescued with assistance from the fire service. Ambulance staff carefully monitored her condition throughout the process, as she was freed from the car.

“She then received treatment for serious injuries before being transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. The MERIT trauma doctor travelled with the patient to help continue treatment enroute to hospital.

“The second woman, who was already out of the vehicle on arrival of ambulance staff, was treated for minor injuries and taken to Russell’s Hall Hospital as a precaution.”
