A man has suffered a serious head injury and been anaesthetised following a road traffic collision in Telford tonight.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Hollinswood and Stafford Industrial Estate shortly after 7.35pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a doctor and the MERIT trauma team to the scene. The police and fire services were also in attendance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had been in collision with a lorry.

“The driver of the car, a man in his 40s, had suffered a significant head injury in the collision and was quickly treated by medics.

“He was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board before being anaesthetised due to the serious nature of his condition. He was then transported to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“Unfortunately the man’s injuries are thought to be extremely serious.

“The lorry driver was uninjured in the incident.”
