A man and woman have died in a six-car crash in Worcestershire which also saw two other people rushed to hospital.

The man and woman were pronounced dead after the crash in Wythall, Bromsgrove, just after 4.40pm on Monday.

Witnesses to the six-car pile-up on the A435 near junction 2 of the M42 have been urged to come forward.

Three air ambulances landed at the scene and rushed a man to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for serious injuries.

Another man was treated at the scene for minor injuries before being taken to the same hospital. A fifth patient was discharged at the scene.

Sergeant Leon Westwood said: ‘The collision happened when a black Honda Civic travelling south on the A435 towards the M42 was involved in a collision near to the petrol station, resulting in it crossing the central reservation into oncoming traffic on the northbound carriageway.

‘Sadly, both occupants of the Honda were pronounced dead at the scene and our thoughts are with their families at this terribly sad time.

‘A number of paramedics attended as well as the air ambulance and one other member of the public travelling north is in a stable condition in hospital having suffered serious injuries.’
