Man in hospital after rush-hour A442 car crash

A man escaped serious injury after a two-car crash which caused rush-hour delays today.

Eye witnesses said the man sat down at the roadside complaining of chest pains following the smash on the A442 near Hodnet shortly after 7.10am.

Another person was suffering shock after the collision, police said.

The crash, about one mile south of Hodnet, involved a blue Renault Laguna and a white Mercedes.

Chris Kowalik, West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman, said: "It appeared to be two cars in collision at the junction for High Hatton.

"We had one patient and there is nothing to suggest any serious injuries. One ambulance crew attended and has handed the patient over to the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford."

The incident caused delays for morning commuters as police closed the road between the A53 junction in Hodnet and the B5062 Crudgington crossroads.

Traffic was diverted until the road reopened at about 8.30am.

Lorries which could not turn around because the road was too narrow had to wait for emergency services to finish at the scene before being allowed to continue.
