A woman has been airlifted to hospital and two other motorists injured in a rush-hour smash on a Shropshire road today which caused long tailbacks for traffic.

The two-car crash near Weston-under-Lizard, on the A5 close to the junction of the A41, left one vehicle seriously damaged and also brought down a telegraph pole. It happened at about 9am.

Mark Hatton, force duty inspector for West Mercia Police, said: "The road is closed at the moment and it's going to be closed for some time. The vehicles are blocking the carriageway."

A West Midland Ambulance Service spokesman said: "There was a two-car collision at about 9am. We received calls from members of the public. An ambulance, a community first responder and the Midlands Air Ambulance based at Staffordshire were in attendance."

A Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "We were called to a two-car collision where one person was thought to be trapped at about 9am this morning, on the old A5 at Pickmere Island.

"When we arrived the person was not trapped and was being dealt with by the ambulance service."
