A woman has been treated for a serious head injury and taken to hospital after being hit by a carport roof this afternoon.

The incident happened at a property off Hartshill Road in Hartshill, Stoke on Trent, shortly before 2.15pm and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent one ambulance to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews were told the roof fell down and hit the woman, which subsequently caused her to collide with a wall.

“The woman, believed to be in her 60s, was treated for a serious head injury and was suffering from a slightly reduced level of consciousness.

“She was also treated for injuries to her face, hand and chest and immobilised before being transported to Royal Stoke University Hospital, where staff had been alerted to the woman’s condition prior to arrival.”
