Vehicles collide on ‘narrow country lane’
Firefighters attended a two-vehicle collision on a “narrow country lane” in Shropshire in the UK over the weekend.
Crews from Bridgnorth Fire Station had just returned to an automatic fire alarm activation when they were alerted to the scene.
In a brief post on social media, a spokesperson for the fire station said:
“A busy day continues…. not long after returning from the AFA, we were mobilised onto a road traffic collision.”
“Two vehicles had collided in a narrow country lane. Thankfully, all persons were out of the vehicles. Two persons required some first aid from the firefighters for minor injuries (another skill all firefighters have!)”
“Both vehicles were made electrically safe, and casualties passed into the care of West Midlands Ambulance.”
“Please take extra care when driving on narrow country lanes – especially where your vision ahead is limited by high hedgerows. Remember, you need to be able to stop in the road you can see if clear,” the spokesperson concluded.
