A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find the patient, a woman thought to be in her 60s, lying in the road following the collision.

“The woman, who remained conscious throughout, was treated for a serious head injury and a leg injury.

“She was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and given pain relief before being transported to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“The doctor travelled with the patient to continue treatment en-route but thankfully the woman’s injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
