A man has been given the best possible care by medics after a collision with a car left him needing trauma care.

The incident happened outside a golf club on Ashby Road in Burton-on-Trent at 1.00pm (Friday). An ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill airbase attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When the ambulance crew arrived they found a 44-year-old man being given excellent care by off duty medics. The man had reportedly been in collision with a car and upon assessment ambulance staff found he had suffered serious injuries.

“Once his condition was stabilised on scene, the man was quickly airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital. Medics at the major trauma centre were pre-alerted to his arrival and serious condition.”
