TWO men have died and a third has been seriously injured following a collision between two cars and a lorry on a busy Evesham road.
The incident occurred on the B4510 near Offenham at the flyover with the A46 shortly before 2.25pm.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Strensham to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said crews arrived to find all three men had been thrown from their cars.
“Ambulance staff were told it followed a collision between the car and a lorry.
“Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save two of the men and they were confirmed dead at the scene.
“The third man, thought to be in his 30s, was assessed and treated for a serious head injury and a suspected leg fracture.
“He was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness and was anaesthetised at the scene.
“Once his condition had been stabilised he was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, for further treatment.
“A second car had suffered minor damage in the incident and the driver, a woman, was treated for an injury to her nose before being discharged on scene.
“The lorry driver, a man, was treated for the effects of shock,” he added.
Fire crews have sent two engines from Evesham Fire Station, plus an ultra-heavy rescue pump and an incident support vehicle from Droitwich Fire Station.
The road is expected to be closed for the foreseeable future.
