Drivers faced lengthy delays on Monday evening following a three-vehicle collision between Ludlow and Ashford Bowdler.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 5.15pm and two patients were taken to hospital for treatment.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "We sent two ambulances and a paramedic officer to the scene. An 18-year-old man who was a passenger in one of the cars was complaining of neck pain. He was given pain relief and taken to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

"A 34-year-old woman, who was in the car which went up an embankment and ended up in a hedge, was taken to a hospital in Herefordshire as a precaution."

The road was closed temporarily while the cars were recovered and engine oil was cleared off the carriageway.
