Monday 30th June 2014 – 11.55pm – Murray MacGregor.
Four people have been injured after a two car crash that left one car in a field and the other with massive damage.
The crash happened at the junction of the B5027 Uttoxeter Road and the B5066 Hilderstone Road / Sandon Road to the east of Stone in Staffordshire.
An off duty paramedic came across the crash and stopped to offer assistance. Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There was a mother and son in the first car which ended up in the field. The mother, who was estimated to be in her 20s had a suspected fractured right wrist.
“Her seven year old son was essentially uninjured after being protected by his car seat. He was complaining of some seatbelt pain across his chest. Both were taken to Stafford Hospital.
“There were two men in the second car. It had suffered very significant damage to its front and had leaked fuel and water all over the road.
“The first man who was in his 30s had suffered a head injury and was airlifted to University Hospital North Staffordshire, though his injuries are not thought too serious.
“The second man, who was in his 20s had shoulder pain and was clearly shaken by the incident. He was taken by land ambulance to the same hospital.”
