A boy has been airlifted to hospital after being in collision with a lorry in Stoke-on-Trent this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Biddulph Road, Fegg Hayes, at around 4.30pm. An ambulance, a responder paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a 10-year-old boy who had been in collision with a lorry.

“The boy suffered chest and head injuries. Crews began treating him at the scene but due to his injuries the doctor decided to anaesthetise him to stabilise his condition.

“The boy was then airlifted to University Hospital North Staffordshire, a specialist trauma centre, for further emergency treatment.”
