The crash involving a car and a van happened at the Tern Hill roundabout, at about 1pm today.

A woman in her 40s was freed from the Peugeot car by firefighters and treated at the scene before being discharged.

The driver of the van, a man in his 40s, was uninjured.

The road between the Tern Hill Roundabout and the roundabout near Market Drayton known as the Muller roundabout was closed for about an hour while emergency services dealt with the crash.

It reopened shortly before 3pm.

Two fire crews from Hodnet attended the scene and used cutting machines to remove the Peugeot’s door.

Claire Brown from the West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “We were called just before 1pm to reports of a two-vehicle road traffic collision.

“Two ambulances were on the scene, one ambulance came across the collision and stopped to help.”

The roundabout connects the A41 and the A53.
