Road Traffic Collision in Iverley, Kidderminster

Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service (HWFRS) was alerted to the incident just before 1am on Saturday morning (14 January) and two fire engines from Kidderminster attended, joining police and paramedics at the scene.

Station Commander Dan Quinn from HWFRS said: “The collision involved a single car with the driver severely trapped inside it. This proved to be a tricky extrication, with fire crews using heavy cutting gear to remove the roof, the wing and the driver’s door from the vehicle to reach the casualty.”

The driver was taken to hospital by ambulance following his release, while a female passenger, who was treated by ambulance staff at the scene, was also taken to hospital.

SC Quinn passed on his thanks to nearby residents for their help during the incident.
