Monday 11th August 2014 – 8.20am – Chris Kowalik.
Two men appear to have escaped serious injury and one is considered lucky to be alive after the car they were in collided with a tree in north Staffordshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A500 at its junction with the A34 in Stoke On Trent shortly after 8.30 pm last night (Sunday).
Two BASICS emergency doctors, two ambulance crews, a paramedic area support officer and a community paramedic attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car collided with a tree and overturned. The damage to the car was so bad, the engine block had fallen out.
“The two men in the car who were both in their twenties had neck pains and were both immobilised and taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.”
A picture taken of the car at the scene shows the extent of the damage.
