A road traffic collision in Staffordshire in the early hours has left a woman with a serious chest injury.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call to the junction of the A515 and B5324 in Newborough shortly before 1.30am (Friday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor were sent.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car which had been involved in a collision; both the driver and passenger had managed to get out of the car prior to their arrival.

“The passenger, a woman believed to be 17-years-old, had sustained a serious chest injury.  She was given pain relief and her wound was dressed before she was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further trauma care. The driver, a man, suffered less serious injuries and was taken to Queens Hospital in Burton as a precaution.”
