Witness Appeal For Worcester Ring Road Collision
Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision that occurred on the Worcester Ring Road yesterday (Thursday 31 July).
At around 1pm, a red VW Golf and two white Mercedes vans collided on the A4440 Temeside Way. The driver of the Golf, a woman in her 50s, was taken by ambulance to the Worcester Royal Hospital where she was treated for injuries to her chest and shoulders and is in a stable condition.
The occupants of the vans were treated by paramedics for minor injuries.
