Saturday 22nd March 2014 – 6pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.
A woman suffered facial injuries and had to be taken to hospital after colliding with a tree whilst horse riding in Kidderminster earlier today (Saturday).
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident at Bissell Wood Equestrian Centre at 1.05pm this afternoon and sent an ambulance, a community paramedic officer and the Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Due to the woodland location, crews had to leave the ambulance at the roadside and complete their journey to the patient on foot.
“On arrival, crews found a woman, believed to be 30-years-old, who had collided with a tree whilst horse riding.
“She was assessed and treated on scene for a suspected fractured jaw and broken teeth.
“After immobilising the woman, ambulance crews worked closely with the fire service to carefully transport her to the waiting ambulance on Deansford Lane before she was conveyed to Worcester Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
