A MAN has died and four passengers were taken to hospital after a car hit a tree on the Honeybourne Road between Honeybourne and Bidford-on-Avon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) was called to the scene at 3.55pm yesterday (Wednesday) and sent three ambulances, three paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Strensham, as well as the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

Of the four patients taken to hospital, three of them were airlifted, including two children.

Crews arrived to find the car had suffered significant damage after hitting the tree and all five patients were initially trapped in the car.

“The driver of the car, a man, had suffered multiple serious injuries in the incident. Unfortunately, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene,” a WMAS spokesman said.

“The front seat passenger, a woman, was treated for serious injuries and airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in a critical condition.

“A woman and two young boys were found in the back of the car.

“The boys were treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening before both being flown to Birmingham Children’s Hospital and the woman was treated for multiple injuries and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital by ambulance.”
