Fatality in Shrewsbury

Tuesday 12th May 2015 – 3.05pm – Steve Parry.

A man has died in a single vehicle road traffic collision in Shrewsbury this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Telford Way at just after 11.15am.

An ambulance together with a paramedic support officer in a rapid response vehicle attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews attended a road traffic collision on Telford Way.  When they arrived, they found an off duty paramedic and nurse performing CPR on the elderly driver.  They were told the car had left the road and collided with a hedge at low speed.

“Despite resuscitation attempts from bystanders and the advanced life support from the ambulance staff, it sadly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the patient who was confirmed dead at the scene.”
