Fatal crash in Staffordshire

Saturday 26th October 2013 – 5.00pm – John Hawker.

A man has died following an RTC in Staffordshire this morning.

The crash occurred on the A5, Norton Cannes at around 11.20am.  An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in a significant collision and suffered substantial damage.  A third car had suffered minor damage.

“A man had been ejected from the vehicle he was driving and was in traumatic cardiac arrest.  Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The man driving the second car, believed to be in his 70’s, suffered a laceration to his head and was also suffering from shock.  He received treatment at the scene and was transferred by ambulance to New Cross Hospital for further treatment.  The man was fortunate not to have suffered more serious injuries.

 “A family of four, two adults and two children, travelling in the third car were not injured in the crash.  They were spoken to by ambulance crews but did not require treatment.”
