A WOMAN died and five people including two teens were injured in a horror head-on crash in the West Midlands yesterday.
The two-car collision took place at around 4pm on Easter Monday in Wychbold, near Droitwich, Worcs.
Tragic photos from the scene show a smashed people carrier and another badly damaged car at the side of the debris-covered road.
The front of the people carrier, a silver Citroen Xsara Picasso, was severely crushed by the impact.
And the other motor, a silver Toyota Yaris, was also left with a smashed front-end.
Emergency services who rushed to the scene shut off the road for several hours as medics tended to victims and cleared the wreckage.
TWO TEENS HURT
An eyewitness, who did not wish to be named, said two teenage passengers were among those hurt in the smash.
A police sergeant at the scene confirmed that the woman driving the people carrier had died. She has not been named.
Collision investigation officers from West Mercia Police were later spotted at the scene of the tragedy.
A force duty inspector confirmed yesterday that there had been a serious collision on the A38 and police would be issuing an update in due course.
