Six people have been taken to hospital following a two car road traffic collision in Stoke on Trent yesterday evening.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Congleton Road in Talke shortly after 9.30pm last night (Friday). Three ambulances, a responder paramedic, a senior paramedic officer and a BASICS emergency doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars which had been involved in a road traffic collision.
“An elderly man and three elderly women were in one car and had suffered a range of injuries. The driver, a man, sustained a pelvic injury. One elderly woman sustained neck pain and breathing difficulties and another suffered a serious hand injury and a nasty laceration to her leg. All three were treated on scene by ambulance crews and the doctor for their injuries before being immobilised with neck collars and spinal boards. The third woman suffered minor cuts and the effects of shock and was also treated on scene.
“A man and woman, both believed to be in their 20s, were in the second car involved in the collision. Crews assessed them both and found they had suffered minor injuries.
“All six patients were conveyed to University Hospital of North Staffordshire for further assessment and treatment.”
