One man has died and another has been taken to a specialist trauma centre following a road traffic collision in Staffordshire last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Market Lane in Newcastle, Stoke-on-Trent at around 10.15pm yesterday evening (Saturday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a senior paramedic officer and two North Staffordshire BASICS doctors were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find two men who had been in collision with a car. Sadly, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save one man and he was confirmed dead on scene.
“The second man, believed to be in his 30s, sustained extensive grazes to his face and body and was suffering pain in his abdomen and pelvis. He was given pain relief at the scene before being immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint. The man was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital; a doctor travelled with the man to continue treatment en route.
“The car which had been involved in the collision had already left the scene when emergency services arrived but was later found by police. The occupants didn’t require hospital treatment.”
