A WOMAN has been airlifted to hospital following a crash on the A46 between Alcester and Stratford.

The crash between a Nissan and a BMW happened at around 9am this morning near to the Stag pub at Red Hill. It left the driver of the Nissan trapped for 45 minutes while firefighters and ambulance staff worked to free her as she was being treated.

The road was closed in both directions at the cross roads near Billesley Manor Hotel and vehicles were redirected through Grafton.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The woman, in her 30s, was complaining of leg, pelvic and chest pain. She was airlifted to the Major Trauma Centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The man in his 50s who had been driving the BMW had managed to get out of the car himself. He was treated for minor knee and rib pain and had a bloodied nose. He was discharged at scene.”
