A man has sadly died and two others have been seriously injured following an accident on Rose Hill, Lickey in the early hours of this morning (Thursday 8th Jan).
The car the three were travelling in was going along the road in the direction of Bromsgrove when it left the carriageway and collided with several trees at around midnight.
The car was on fire down a small embankment and crews from all three emergency services worked together to free the occupants.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirmed that they had attended three occupants at the scene.
The male driver sustained a head injury and burns and, after receiving emergency treatment, was transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
A male rear seat passenger was trapped in the vehicle for around one hour and 40 minutes, before being safely freed by emergency crews. The man was treated for serious multiple injuries before being taken to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The spokeswoman confirmed that, sadly, the third male occupant of the car was confirmed dead at the scene.
The road was closed until around 6.40am this morning while police investigated the scene.
Anyone with any information or who witnessed the accident should call West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 1 of 8th January.
