A rapid response vehicle, two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a BASICS Emergency Doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a blue car with significant front end damage.  A white and orange campervan had left the road and come to rest against the side of a house; there was also debris in the road.

“There were four patients in total; the two more serious were from the camper van.

“The front seat passenger, a woman in her 30s was initially reported to be semi-conscious, but came round as ambulance staff treated her.  She was airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital with a possible head injury.

“The driver, a man was taken to the same hospital with neck and abdominal pain.  Both were immobilised before being taken to hospital.
