A tractor driver has escaped with only minor injuries after a serious head-on collision involving a car in Shropshire.
Emergency services were sent to the A49 in Marshbrook on Sunday (15 July) evening following the collision between a red Massey Ferguson tractor and a VW Passat.
Paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service treated both drivers at the scene for minor injuries, but neither required hospital treatment.
Firefighters from Craven Arms fire station, who helped clear the wreckage, said it was lucky that no one was seriously hurt considering the impact of the collision.

A large amount of oil was spilt from the tractor engine on to the carriageway, which was also damaged.
The road was closed for a couple of hours to allow council environmental teams to clear the spillage and resurface the damaged section.
