TWO sisters are in a critical condition following a car collision near Redditch.
It happened on the B4083 Studley Road, on the border of Worcestershire and Warwickshire, at about 8.20am on Monday, September 9.
A black Volkswagen Lupo was heading towards Redditch when it was in a head on collision with a yellow Peugeot 307.
The driver of the Lupo, Rebecca Flay, aged 20, sustained serious injuries, as did the front seat passenger, her sister Stephanie Flay, aged 22.
The sisters, both from Studley, are currently in a critical but stable condition in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
West Mercia Police has taken the unusual step of naming Rebecca and Stephanie with the permission of their family.
The driver of the Peugeot, a 23-year-old woman from Redditch, was treated at the nearby Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for whiplash injuries and shock.
The road was 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.”
PC Roberts can be contacted on 0300 333 3000 quoting incident 84-s-090913.
