“Three occupants were believed to have been travelling in the car at the time of the incident.
“One of the occupants was found lying in a garden near to the incident. Ambulance crews immediately assessed the patient but unfortunately despite best efforts nothing could be done to save the person and they were confirmed deceased at the scene.
“A second patient was also found on the floor outside of the vehicle and was given advance emergency medical treatment for serious multiple injuries. The casualty was fully immobilised and conveyed to the major trauma centre at University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
