A pedestrian received specialist trauma care at the scene of a collision with a car yesterday before being taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres in a serious condition.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Worcester Street in Stourport-on-Severn, shortly before 4.25pm and sent two ambulances, a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a senior paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Strensham in a rapid response vehicle to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival at the scene crews discovered a man, believed to be in his 50s, with a severely reduced level of consciousness.

“He was treated for multiple serious injuries, including to his head, chest and legs. In order to stabilise his condition, he was anaesthetised at the scene.

“He was then transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham with the MERIT doctor travelling on the ambulance to continue treatment en-route.

“The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 30s, was treated for rib and head pain and taken to Worcester Royal Hospital.”
