THIS was the scene as emergency services attended a crash near Blakedown.
Two people were taken to hospital, one by air ambulance, following the incident on the A456 at about 4.30pm yesterday on the A456 at the junction with Broome Lane.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car on its side with an elderly couple trapped inside. A Transit-type van was in a nearby hedge.
“Working with firefighters, the roof of the car was removed so that ambulance staff could get the couple out safely.”
The couple in the car were taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, the lady with a head injury and the man with minor leg and head injuries.
The van driver, 60, was unhurt.
