A POLICE appeal has been launched after two people were seriously injured when a car crashed into a wall in Bewdley.

Emergency services were called to Lower Park in Bewdley at around 2am on Monday (September 9) and two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor from West Midlands Ambulance Service were sent to the scene.

A male passenger, aged in his 30s, was found with multiple injuries in a serious condition and a woman in her 40s, who was the driver of the car - a blue Audi A4 convertible - had also suffered potentially serious injuries.

An ambulance service spokesman said: "Crews arrived to find two patients, one of whom, a man, was in a serious condition having suffered multiple injuries in the incident.

“He received specialist trauma care at the scene and once his condition had been stabilised, he was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital on blue lights and sirens. The doctor travelled with the patient to help continue treatment on the way to hospital.

“The driver of the car, a woman, was treated for potentially serious injuries and taken to the same hospital for further assessment.”

Both were taken to major trauma centres for further treatment.

Firefighters released two dogs from the car and police were also called to the scene.

West Mercia Police has since launched an appeal for witnesses, and officers are particularly interested in viewing any dashcam footage of the incident.

A police spokesman said: "We are appealing for witnesses to a serious single vehicle collision in Bewdley.

"The incident happened at around 2am on Monday morning when a blue Audi A4 convertible collided with a wall on Lower Park.

"The driver of the vehicle, a woman in her 40s, and a passenger, a man in his 30s, sustained serious injuries and were taken to hospital for treatment.

"If anyone witnessed the collision or has dashcam footage of the incident, please call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 27s of September 9.
