A man in his 70s had to be cut free from his car after suffering a suspected head injury in a crash in Shropshire.
One car ended up on its roof after the accident on Shrewsbury Road in Wem, shortly before 8.30am yesterday.
A Ford Focus and a Vauxhall Corsa were involved.
The man driving the Corsa was taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire with back, chest and head injuries. His injuries are not thought to be serious.
Claire Thomas, spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance service, said: “One car was upside down and one ambulance was sent to the scene. A man in his 70s was in the overturned car and had to be extradited with the help of the fire service.
"He suffered back and chest injuries and a suspected head injury. He was given pain relief, immobilised and taken to hospital in North Staffordshire via land ambulance.”
Fire crews from Wem, Prees, Wellington and an officer from Shrewsbury were sent to the scene and spent about 20 minutes freeing the trapped driver.
In a separate accident, two people were taken to hospital after a crash at the junction of the B4362 with the A49 in Woofferton yesterday at about 5.20am.
