TWO people have been injured and taken to hospital following a crash between a van and an HGV.

The crash happened this morning on the A429 in Tredington, Shipston on Stour, near to Glebe Farm, at 4.18am.

The West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, two paramedic officers, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered a van on its side and a HGV, both of which had front end damage.

“The driver of the van, a man, was treated by ambulance staff for serious injuries and taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. The doctor travelled with the patient to continue treatment enroute.

“The passenger from the van, also a man, was treated for potentially serious injuries before being taken to the same hospital.

“The lorry driver, a man, was assessed at the scene and was going to make his own way to hospital as a precaution.”
