A boy has been seriously injured in a road traffic collision in Telford this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a car and a pedestrian in Station Road, Madeley at around 3.30pm today (Friday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find an eleven-year-old boy who had been involved in a collision with a car.

“Upon assessment, crews and the doctor found the young boy had sustained a serious head injury and a suspected fractured arm. Crews administered pain relief to stabilise his condition before they worked to immobilise him with a neck collar and spinal board.

“The boy was then conveyed by land ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to hospital to continue treatment en route.

“The driver of the car, a woman, was assessed by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment.”
