FOUR people were injured after a head on collision between two cars at Blakes Hill in North Littleton near Evesham.

A woman was treated by ambulance crews after her car was spun round and ended up in a hedge after the collision just after 6pm on Monday (July 27).

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Both cars had suffered fairly substantial damage to the front end.  One car was facing the opposite direction to the way it was travelling and was in a hedge.

“The woman driving was trapped for a period but ambulance staff worked with firefighters to get her out safely.

“She was complaining of minor back, hip and chest pain and was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch by ambulance.

“There were three people in the other vehicle.

“A 16-year-old boy who had been in the rear seat had managed to get out of the car but was complaining of right hip pain and had lost many of his front teeth.

“He was airlifted to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for the treatment for his serious facial injuries.

“The driver, a man of about 20 had also got out himself.  He had suffered a fractured dislocation of his wrist that required strong pain relief. The paramedic from the air ambulance put the wrist back in place before he was taken by ambulance to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

“The front seat passenger of the car was complaining about pain in right knee, but after treatment was discharged on scene.”
