A man was trapped in his vehicle for approximately 45 minutes this morning after it overturned in a single car collision in Herefordshire.  

The incident happened shortly before 11.05am on the A449 in Ledbury and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent an ambulance, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, which landed on a nearby field, to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car on its side with a man trapped inside.

“Crews acted quickly to assess the 18-year-old man and thankfully were able to determine that his condition was not thought to be life threatening.

“They then worked closely with the fire service to carefully free the man, a sole occupant, from the vehicle. A procedure which involved cutting the roof off the car and lasted about 45 minutes.

“He was treated for a broken collar bone and a number of cuts and grazes, including to his head.

“He was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and taken to Hereford County Hospital by land ambulance for further assessment.

 “It is not thought any other vehicles were involved in the incident which did cause the road to be closed.”
