TWO people were taken to hospital, one by air ambulance, after a crash near Blakedown.
The crash on the A456 happened at about 4.30pm yesterday on the A456 at the junction with Broome Lane.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car on its side with an elderly couple trapped inside. A Transit-type van was in a nearby hedge.
“Working with firefighters, the roof of the car was removed so that ambulance staff could get the couple out safely.
“The elderly lady had a nasty head injury and was sedated by the doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance before being airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
“The man driving the car had a minor leg and head injuries. He was taken by land ambulance to the same hospital but his injuries are not thought serious.
“The van driver, a man estimated to be about 60, was unhurt and was discharged at the scene.”
