West Midlands Ambulance Service joined North West Ambulance Service at the scene of a fatal road traffic collision last night.

The Trust received a 999 call from Staffordshire Police shortly after 9.30pm (Tuesday) reporting a collision involving a HGV and a pedestrian just over the border on the A500 near Weston, Cheshire. An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended and were joined by colleagues from the North West.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly, it quickly became apparent to ambulance staff that nothing could be done to save the pedestrian and death was confirmed on scene by WMAS.

“The lorry driver, a man, was checked over by North West colleagues and was found to be uninjured but suffering from the effects of shock.”
