    Six injured in sheep trailer collision

    Six injured in sheep trailer collision

    Six people have been injured after a trailer carrying around 30 sheep ended up on top of a car following a crash.

    The road traffic accident involving three vehicles happened on the A49 in the Herefordshire village of Callow. Paramedics said it was “astonishing” no-one was killed in the incident at about 9.20am on Wednesday, March 16.

    Serious damage

    Emergency services arrived at the scene to find a silver BMW with a trailer on top of it. A Land Rover Defender had been pulling the trailer, and suffered “serious damage” in the accident.

    A Honda Civic found at the side of the road also sustained “significant damage”. The driver of the Honda was taken to hospital with a broken leg. His two passengers – including a three-year-old boy – were taken to hospital as a precaution.

    A 41-year-old woman and two young children travelling in the BMW were shaken but unhurt in the car crash.

    West Midlands Ambulance Service said it was extraordinary that the levels of injury were not more serious given the nature of the crash and where the vehicles ended up.

    Officials added a number of sheep travelling in the trailer had to be put down following the collision.

    Road traffic accidents

    Road traffic accidents can be distressing experiences and can also result in a variety of injuries, from the minor to the very serious.

    The most common result of an accident is whiplash, in which the tendons and muscle fibres in the head and neck are damaged by the sudden force of an impact.

    Symptoms can cause significant disruption to a person’s daily routine, although they may take a few days to appear.

    Other common injuries include broken ribs and bruising, both of which can be extremely painful.
