A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered a total of three patients.

“A woman, who was the passenger in the van, had to be cut free by colleagues from the fire service. She was treated by ambulance crews for serious injuries, not believed to be life-threatening.

“The driver of the van, a man, managed to get himself out of the vehicle and was treated for potentially serious injuries.

“A second man, who was the driver of the car, also had to be cut free by the fire service. He was also treated for serious injuries, not believed to be life-threatening.

“All three patients were then taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital by land ambulance for further treatment.”

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene. The Welsh Air Ambulance was also in attendance.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service sent three fire appliances and an operations officer.

The road has since reopened.
