Wednesday 2nd April 2014 – 10.10pm – Claire Brown.

A woman had to be anaesthetised at the roadside by ambulance medics before being taken to A&E following a single car collision in Rugby this evening.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the B4453 Straight Mile near a farm in Bourton shortly after 7.45pm this evening (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a responder paramedic, a MERIT trauma doctor and a BASICS doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a single car which had rolled over. The driver and single occupant, a woman, was trapped in the wreckage.

“Ambulance staff and medics worked to stabilise the woman, who had sustained a suspected head injury in the collision, before working closely with the fire service to extricate her from the vehicle.

“Medics decided to anaesthetise her at the scene due to the nature of the woman’s injury and her condition. She was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. The trauma doctor travelled with the patient to hospital to continue treatment en route.”
