A car which ended up down an embankment in Market Drayton yesterday saw ambulance staff provide trauma care to the passenger.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a road traffic collision on Adderley Lane, Adderley, Market Drayton at 5.00pm yesterday (Sunday). Two ambulances, a responder paramedic and the aircrew and MERIT trauma doctor from the Air Ambulance base at Cosford attended in a response car.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car which had left the road and was down an embankment. The passenger, a man, was out of the vehicle and had sustained multiple serious injuries which required vital trauma care. The man was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further care; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to continue treatment en route.
“The driver, a man in his 30s, had managed to get out of the car and was walking around the scene. The man was assessed and was found to have suffered relatively minor injuries. Due to the damage caused to the car in the collision, the man was taken to the same hospital as a precaution.”
