Birmingham Road was closed between 9.20am and 9.25am following the collision.

A woman has died and a young girl has been left seriously injured following a collision on Western Road in Stratford this morning.

The collision was reported at about 8.45am and involved pedestrians and a car transporter.

The woman was declared dead at the scene while the young girl was airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with serious pelvic injuries.

Her condition is described as stable.

West Midlands Ambulance Service provided advanced trauma care to the girl and the woman as an ambulance, several paramedics, doctors and the West Midlands Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.

Another girl who was walking with the woman and girl was not injured.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly, nothing could be done to save a woman who had been involved in a collision with the vehicle and she was confirmed dead on scene.

“A young girl had also been involved in the collision and upon further assessment by ambulance staff and medics they found she had sustained multiple serious injuries. The little girl was given trauma care in the ambulance to help stabilise her condition before she was airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital with a doctor on board.  A second girl was assessed by paramedics but was uninjured and didn’t require hospital treatment. The lorry driver, a man, was checked over but was also uninjured.

“Ambulance staff would like to praise the bystanders and, in particular, the staff from a nearby car dealership for their help and assistance at the scene.”

Police investigating the incident would like to hear from anyone who witnessed it or saw the vehicle or pedestrians before the collision occurred.

Anyone with information is asked to call Warwickshire Police on 101.
