Two cars ended up colliding during a heavy downpour in Stoke-on-Trent earlier today leaving one man requiring hospital treatment.

The incident happened shortly before 9.00am this morning in Shawe Park Road, Kingsley (Thursday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a senior paramedic officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found two cars which had been involved in a collision; one of the cars had ended up pointing in the wrong direction at the side of the road. At the time of the collision, it was reportedly raining heavily.

“One driver suffered no injuries. The second driver, a 65-year-old man, suffered head and facial injuries as well as hip pain.

“Ambulance staff and medics worked together to treat the man at the roadside. He was given pain relief and immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by land ambulance to University Hospital North Staffordshire for further treatment.”
