Two people were seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Malmesbury today (Saturday).
Emergency services were called to the scene on the B4042, near the junction with Priory Lane, at around 4pm.
Two vehicles, a silver Land Rover Discovery and a black Audi RS4, were involved in a head-on crash on the 30mph stretch.
The driver and passenger in the Audi, a man and woman, were extricated by firefighters and paramedics – after the vehicle’s roof was removed.
They were both taken to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.
The male driver of the Land Rover, and a baby in one of the vehicles, escaped the smash with less serious injuries.
Wiltshire Air Ambulance landed in a nearby field to allow the charity’s critical care medics to provide emergency care alongside several local ambulance crews and two ambulance officers.
Two fire engines, one from Chippenham and one from a station in Gloucestershire, attended the scene.
The road was closed for two hours whilst 999 crews worked and the vehicles involved were recovered.
Anyone who witnessed the collision, or has dashcam footage, is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101.
