A vehicle collided into the side of a tractor and trailer that was carrying bales of hay and coming out of a field, the hay subsequently caught fire, which is all that you can see in this photo. 


Emergency vehicles from both Hereford and Ross attended the scene and have been in attendance all night.

A man has died after a crash between a 4×4 and a tractor pulling a trailer with hay on it.


It happened last night in Herefordshire on the A49 between Bryn Garth and Much Birch near to the Axe & Cleaver.


Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent after the alert was raised at around 9.45pm.


A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman: “On arrival, ambulance staff found the 4×4 on fire with a hay bale also on fire.


“The man driving the 4×4 was confirmed dead at the scene.


“A 34-year-old woman, who was the front seat passenger in the 4×4, had been able to get out of the vehicle and was treated for facial injuries at the scene before being taken to Hereford County Hospital.


“The tractor driver, a 49-year-old man, was clearly distressed but was uninjured and didn’t want to go to A+E.â€
