A MAN was trapped in his car for around an hour after being involved in a crash with a van in Spetchley on Thursday (November 1) afternoon.

The driver, in his 50s, suffered lower limb fractures as well as suspected pelvic and head injuries after his Nissan Note and a Citroen Relay van crashed on Evesham Road near The Nightingale pub.

The man was freed from his car and flown to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

His passenger, a woman in her 30s, suffered abdominal injuries, while the driver of the van was taken to hospital with a

suspected fractured breastbone. Both were taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital for treatment.

The road was closed in both directions from the A422 roundabout to the junction, near the Berkeley Arms pub, before it was reopened at about 8.15pm.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident.
