Five people have been treated by paramedics after a crash on the A38 near Lichfield. Two cars and a motorcycle were involved in the incident on the northbound carriageway at Barton-under-Needwood at 8pm last night (February 27). A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Three people were travelling in one car – a woman in her 30s who was a passenger was treated at the scene for back and side pain. Following treatment she was transferred to Burton Queens Hospital for further treatment. “A second passenger, a man in his 30s, received treatment at the scene for a facial injury and was then discharged by medics. The driver of the car, a man in his 50s, was checked over by medics but was uninjured. “The driver of the second car, a woman in her 30’s, was also checked over at the scene by medics and was subsequently discharged. “The rider of a motorcycle, a man in his late teens, was treated at the scene for concussion. Following treatment the man was transferred by ambulance to Royal Derby Hospital for further emergency treatment.”
