Hagley crash couple discharged from hospital but police seek witnesses
6:06pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
AN elderly couple injured when their car collided with a van near Hagley have been discharged from hospital - but police still want to hear from witnesses.
The couple were travelling in a silver Honda Civic which hit a white Ford Transit van on the A456 Kidderminster Road at its junction with Broome Lane at around 4.30pm on Monday (September 2).
The pair, both in their 80s, were trapped inside with the vehicle, which was on its side, and firefighters had to cut off the roof to free them.
The man driving the car suffered minor leg and head injuries and was taken to Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital; while the woman was airlifted to the same hospital with a more serious head injury.
Both, however, have now been discharged.
Following the collision the van left the road and hit a fence outside a property but the male driver was not injured and did not require hospital treatment.
PC Michael Haines said: “There were other vehicles at the scene when this happened and we are appealing for witnesses to help our investigation into the circumstances.
“We would also like to speak to anyone who was driving or walking past and saw the collision or either of the vehicles there beforehand.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Haines at West Mercia Police’s Force Operations Support Team (FOST), based at Rubery Police Station, on the non-emergency number 101 - quoting incident reference number 471-S-020913.
