Three people have been injured after being involved in a serious road traffic collision in Staffordshire today.

Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire and two BASICS doctors were sent to the incident at the junction of the B5027 and the B5066 in Dayhills, Stone shortly before 9.50am this morning.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived on scene to find three vehicles that had been in collision. One of the cars was found in two pieces, with part of the car found in a hedge and another section found further down the road.

“Each of the vehicles had been carrying a single occupant at the time of the incident.

“A woman driver from one of the cars was trapped in her vehicle and had suffered serious head injuries and a suspected fractured leg. The woman was treated at the scene as emergency service crews worked together to safely free her.

“The woman was immobilised and conveyed to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital, via land ambulance, for further assessment and treatment. One of the doctors travelled on board the ambulance with the crew continuing to provide emergency medical treatment whilst en route to hospital.

“The driver of the second car, a woman, was treated for chest and leg injuries before being conveyed to County Hospital in Stafford for further assessment and treatment.

“The driver of the third vehicle, which had sustained significant damage and was found in two pieces, was out of the vehicle on the crew’s arrival. He was treated at the scene for a head injury before being conveyed to the Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“All three patients travelled via land ambulance to hospital.”
