A man has been anaesthetised and taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres after the car he was travelling in overturned in a single vehicle collision in Staffordshire last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Dingle Lane and Sandon Road in Hilderstone shortly before 10.30pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a BASICS doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car that had come to rest on all four wheels despite reportedly overturning after leaving the road and colliding with a tree. There was significant damage to the passenger side of the car.

“The sole occupant of the car, a man in his 20s, was treated by ambulance staff for a serious head injury before being anaesthetised.

“He was then taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment and treatment. The hospital had been alerted to the man’s condition prior to his arrival.”
