The smash happened on Mount Pleasant Road in Shrewsbury at around 12.30pm today.

West Mercia Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service were at the scene near Whitemere Road, and although nobody was seriously injured both drivers were taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Claire Brown, a spokesman for the ambulance service, said: "We were called at just before 12.30pm to reports of a road traffic collision involving two cars.

"Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were in attendance.

"We treated two patients. A man in his 60s, the driver of one of the vehicles, suffered some shoulder pain.

"He was given some pain relief before being taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

"The second patient, a woman in her 30s, was the driver of the second car. She suffered shoulder pain and a seatbelt related injury.

"She was given pain relief before being taken to the same hospital."

Police said serious injury had been avoided thanks to everybody involved wearing their seatbelts.

The road was partially reopened at around 1.30pm and then fully reopened by 2.10pm.
