A MAN had to be airlifted to hospital after being trapped for almost two hours following a crash near Beoley.

Emergency services were called to the incident, which involved a light van and a car, on the A435 Birmingham Road near the M42 just after 8am on Monday (February 16).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said a man in his 20s was trapped in his vehicle for almost two hours after his van also collided with a tree.

He was treated for serious leg and pelvic injuries, stabilised at the scene and immobilised with the use of a neck collar, pelvic splint and orthopaedic stretcher before being airlifted to the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

A second man, believed to be in his 40s and travelling in the car, was treated for minor chest injuries and taken by ambulance to the Alexandra Hospital.

Two ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic support officer, the Warwickshire and Northants Air Ambulance and a BASIC doctors were sent to the scene.
