A 73-YEAR-OLD man had to be taken to hospital after a two car smash near Alcester.

Emergency services were called to the A46 Alcester bypass near the junction with the A435 around 6.45pm on Sunday (January 31).

Two ambulances, an area support officer and a crew from the Midland Air Ambulance attended the incident.

The elderly man was trapped in his car and had to be cut free by firefighters.

He was suffering from shoulder, arm, leg and chest pains and was immobilised and given pain relief by paramedics before being taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for furtherchecks.

Two passengers travelling in the second car had cuts and bruises but did not require hospital treatment.
