A MAN was airlifted to hospital following a road traffic collision near Tenbury yesterday.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the accident at Newnham Bridge at around 7am.
An ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were dispatched to the scene.
Suzie Fothergill, a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeman, said: “Crews were called to reports of a car that had been in collision with a number of stationary vehicles.
“The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 30s, was trapped in the vehicle for approximately one hour while emergency services worked together to free him safely.
“The man was treated for a chest injury and his lung was required to be decompressed at the scene.
“Due to the cold weather conditions the casualty was wrapped in a specialist blanket and was airlifted to Worcester Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
“The hospital was pre-alerted to the arrival of the man and of his injuries.”
