Shropshire A49 fatal ambulance crash victim named

The driver of a car who died after a crash with an ambulance in Shropshire on Thursday has been named by police.

Kieran Nathan Moore-Hughes, 25, of Heath Farm, Shrewsbury, was confirmed dead at the scene, on the A49 at Preston Brockhurst, outside Shrewsbury.

The crash happened at about 13:45 BST and closed the A49 for several hours.

A woman in her 20s, a passenger in Mr Moore-Hughes's car, remains in a critical but stable condition, police said.

She was airlifted to University Hospital of North Staffordshire with serious head and chest injuries.

An ambulance driver was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, suffering from head, pelvis and leg injuries.

Two other women in the ambulance, including a patient, were taken to the Royal Shrewsbury with less serious injuries.

An inquest into Mr Moore-Hughes's death is due to be opened by Shropshire coroner Mr John Ellery next week.

Officers said they were continuing to investigate the cause of the crash and renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward.
