Woman dies and two hurt in Morville crash

A 19-year-old woman has died and two other people have been hurt in an accident in Shropshire.

Emergency services were called to the A458 in Morville shortly after 0835 GMT.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said it appeared that two cars had been involved in a collision.

Bystanders had tried to resuscitate the woman driving one of the vehicles but she was confirmed dead at the scene, she said.

Two people in the second vehicle involved, thought to be in their late 30s or early 40s, were taken to hospital.

Police said the 19-year-old had been in a Ford Ka which was heading towards Bridgnorth while the second car involved, a VW Beetle, had been travelling in the opposite direction.

Any witnesses are asked to contact West Mercia Police.
