Rollover crash in Staffordshire

Tuesday 25th February 2014 – 6.55am – Murray MacGregor.

A man has had to be cut free from the wreckage of the car he was driving after a crash in Staffordshire overnight.

The crash happened on Levedale Road in Penkridge, just after midnight on Tuesday morning.

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the MERIT Trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car that had collided with a tree and overturned.

“The roof was removed so that the driver, a 24 year old man could be removed safely from the car after suffering from a dislocated hip. He also had a reduced level of consciousness.

“He was taken to University Hospital North Staffordshire with the doctor travelling with the crew.

“There were two 17 year old women in the car. One had managed to get out before ambulance staff arrived and had a facial injury.

“The other was immobilised as a precaution due to the level of damage to the car. Both travelled in the same ambulance to University Hospital North Staffordshire.”
