A WOMAN was trapped in her vehicle for about an hour and 20 minutes following a two-car collision that saw both vehicles leave the road near Bewdley last night.

The incident involved four patients in total, two of whom were discharged at scene with minor injuries, but the other two required further treatment at Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on the A442 Bridgnorth Road, shortly before 9.25pm and sent three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival at the scene, crews discovered two cars that had left the road and suffered significant damage, one of which had come to rest on its roof and the other that had hit a bush.

“From the car that collided with a bush, paramedics treated the passenger, a woman in her 60s, for back, chest and abdominal injuries. She was immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and given pain relief.

“Crews worked closely with the fire service to carefully cut her free from the car, a process which took over an hour due to the difficult location of the vehicle.

“She was then transported to hospital with the doctor travelling on the ambulance to continue treatment en route. The driver of the car, a man in his 70s, was discharged at scene with minor chest and arm injuries.

“The second car came to rest on its roof but both patients had managed to free themselves from the vehicle.

“Paramedics treated a 25-year-old female for arm, knee and abdominal injuries before she was also conveyed to hospital.

“A second patient from the vehicle was discharged on scene with minor injuries.”

Which map/internet source or local knowledge did the Kidderminster Shuttle team use to find the facts for this report?

This links the "two-car collision that saw both vehicles leave the road in Bewdley" and "called to the incident on the A442 Bridgnorth Road".

If the reporting team wants to earn money for cutting and pasting at least do with some care on fact checking and proof reading.

Take it you were a little bored yesterday Ross? What it actually says is " a two-car collision that saw both vehicles leave the road NEAR Bewdley last night." NEAR being the operative word... If the collision was anywhere NEAR the Trimpley turn, then the accident did indeed happen NEAR to Bewdley. Admittedly it is probably still NEARER to Kidderminster, but it is still also NEAR to Bewdley.

Now what really matters is that those involved are Ok after this accident which was NEAR to Bewdley,

No Kiddypaul81.

The news item text has finally been redacted over 24 hours after the original was posted.

My comment contains a direct quote of the original shoddy journalistic cut and paste. The article has now been adjusted after my comment but no comment on the revision made.

I think the point is the journalistic standards of this Stourbridge-based newspaper.

Of course it matters. It's completely wrong, the A442 doesn't go anywhere near Bewdley and you would expect a 'Local' newspaper journalist to know that.
