A PENSIONER suffered crush injuries after a collision between three cars and a lorry in Shipston this morning.
The crash occurred at the junction of the A429 and Darlingscote Road around 9.40am and five people were injured.
Two ambulances, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance all attended the scene.
Area Manager, Martyn Scott, said: “Crews arrived to find three cars and a lorry that had been in a significant collision.
“The man driving one car, believed to be in his 60’s, suffered crush injuries to his lower legs and also head, face and pelvic injuries.
“He was cared for by an off duty paramedic who stopped to help. The man was trapped in his vehicle for around an hour and was treated at the scene before he was airlifted to University Hospital where a trauma team were on standby.”
Another car involved in the collision was found on its side in a ditch with the driver – a man in his 40's – already out of the vehicle.
He was treated for serious chest injuries and was taken by ambulance to hospital for further treatment.
Two men and a woman travelling in the third car received treatment at the scene for minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment.
The lorry driver was uninjured in the crash.
