A "serious accident" closed a busy road for almost six hours.

The A44 in Abbey View Road, Wyre Piddle, near Pershore was closed after two cars and a lorry crashed at 5.11am on Monday morning, although only the two cars were damaged.

One of the cars ended up on its side, with the female casualty escaping from the car herself with a minor nose injury.

The other driver, a man, suffered minor injuries to his left hand and his left leg.

A road closure was put in place due to an oil spillage.

A West Mercia Police spokesman said: "At approximately 5am of today (25 September) West Mercia Police received a report of a collision on Abbey View Road, Wyre Piddle.

"The collision was between two cars, a BMW 320 D and a Renault Captur.

"There was one report of an injury which was treated at the scene by ambulance servicers.

"A road closure is in place on the Abbey View Road up to and including the roundabout with the A44, whilst emergency services deal with the incident.

"We would request that alternative routes are made, and to stay clear of the area."
