Five people have escaped serious injury after a two car collision in Stoke on Trent in the early hours.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to King Street in Fenton just before 1.00am this morning (Sunday). Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a BASICS doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Two cars had been involved in a significant collision causing extensive damage to both cars. Four occupants were in one car, all men believed to be in their 20s and 30s.
“The driver was initially trapped in the vehicle due to the damage. Upon assessment by crews and the medic, it was found that the man had no apparent serious injuries. They worked with the fire service to release him from the vehicle and, due to the nature of the crash and the damage sustained, the man was taken to University Hospital North Staffordshire as a precaution.
“One passenger suffered a minor leg injury, the other a facial injury and the third a slight head injury. All three were treated on scene before being taken to the same hospital.
“The driver in the second car was visibly shaken and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
“Considering the damage caused in the crash, it was fortunate that no one suffered more serious injuries.”
