Rapid Response Vehicle

Sunday 29th March 2015 – 6pm – Steve Parry.

Two people have been taken to hospital following a road traffic incident in which they appear to have been run down by their own car.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Lid Lane, Cheadle at just after 1.50pm.

Two ambulances, a paramedic support officer, a community paramedic; two BASICS doctors and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews responded to an incident following reports that two people had been injured by their own car.

“The couple appear to have got out of their vehicle as it rolled forward causing injury to both of them.

“A man in his twenties was treated for a fractured leg at the scene. He was immobilised with the use of a neck collar, splint and spinal board. Pain relief was administered before he was conveyed to the Royal Stoke University Hospital by land ambulance.

“A woman also in her twenties received leg injuries and she was taken to the University hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
