A man had to be anaesthetised at the scene of a road traffic collision in Rugby this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian on Main Street in Bilton shortly after 4.00pm today (Monday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The responder paramedic was first on scene and found a man lying in the road unconscious after reportedly colliding with a car.

“Upon assessment, crews found the man, believed to be in his 80s, had sustained a serious head injury. The doctor decided to anaesthetise him on scene due to his condition. Once stable, crews and the medic immobilised the man with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint before he was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment.”
