A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "Ambulance crews were called to a road traffic incident following reports of a two-car collision.
"Four patients were treated at the scene by ambulance crews and conveyed to hospital.
"A female in her twenties, travelling as a front seat passenger was trapped for a short time and suffered pelvic injuries.
"She was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.
"The female driver of the car, also believed to be in her twenties, suffered arm, chest and neck pain. She was taken to Queen's Hospital in Burton."
Two people travelling in the other car, the driver who was a man in his fifties and his passenger, a woman in her eighties, were both treated at the scene for chest injuries and were taken to the Queen's Hospital Burton for further assessment and treatment.
