Serious RTC at Stoke Edith

The incident happened at just after 7.30pm (on Thursday 25 August) on the road between Shucknall Hill and Stoke Edith. Two crews from Hereford and one from Bromyard attended the scene.

The incident involved one vehicle which was in collision with a bridge parapet. Two male casualties were released prior to the arrival of the Fire Service but a further male casualty was trapped in the back of the vehicle.

Firefighters used cutting gear to remove the roof of the car so that the casualty could be released. They worked closely with the paramedics at the scene.

"This was a serious road traffic collision," said Station Commander Neil Pigott, who was officer in charge at the scene. "The young male casualty in the back of the vehicle was severely trapped and it took around an hour for the firefighters to release him. He was cared for by the paramedics before being taken to hospital by ambulance."
