A CAR was engulfed in flames after a crash which left three people injured, including a young girl.

The hatchback caught fire following a collision with a Land Rover on the A443, near Holt Heath, at around 12.22pm on Saturday.

Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were called to the scene outside Naunton Farm.

They treated a female driver, in her 20s, who suffered arm, knee and neck pain, as well as a male driver in his 60s, who sustained cuts to his hand and reported hip and back pain.

Both patients were taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

A young girl, who is aged between 5 and 15, was also transported to the same hospital after treatment for chest pain.

Firefighters sent from Droitwich extinguished the blaze and left at 2.13pm.

One witness said traffic was heavy in both directions after the crash.
