SISTERS from Studley remain in a critical condition following a crash yesterday morning (Monday).
The incident happened on the Studley Road near the border of Worcestershire and Warwickshire at around 8.20am when a black Volkswagen Lupo heading towards Redditch and a yellow Peugeot 307 collided.
Both driver Rebecca Flay, aged 20, and her 22-year-old sister Stephanie, who was the front seat passenger, suffered multiple injuries during the crash.
Both were taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and are currently in a critical but stable condition.
The Peugeot driver, a 23-year-old woman from Redditch, was treated at the Alexandra Hospital for whiplash injuries and shock.
Police, two ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer, a trauma doctor from the Midlands Air Ambulance and a BASICS medic were sent to the scene, with the road closed until around 1.30pm.
PC Mark Roberts from West Mercia Police said: "This collision has left two sisters with very serious injuries, and our thoughts are with them and their relatives, who are being supported by a specially trained family liaison officer.
"We are trying to piece together exactly how and why the collision happened, and although we have already spoken to a number of witnesses, we are very keen to hear from anyone else who saw what happened."
Anyone with any information should call PC Robert on 0300 333 3000, quoting incident number 84-s-090913.
