A cyclist was taken to hospital last night as a precaution after a road traffic collision in Staffordshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a report of a cyclist in collision with at least one car in Main Road, Brereton shortly before 7.25pm.

An ambulance crew, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire attended. A passing Community First Responder also stopped to help.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said : “The man who was wearing a cycle helmet was initially reported to have been trapped under a car. Thankfully when crews arrived that turned out not to be the case. It is believed he initially lost consciousness,  but he appeared to have just minor injuries.

“He was immobilised and was flown to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
