Monday 3rd August 2015 – 6.55pm – Murray MacGregor.
“Considering the damage to the car and the bushes, the people in the car have been very lucky indeed.” That was the view of the ambulance staff who attended a crash on the eastbound A50, about 2 miles from JCB near Uttoxeter.
The crash happened at about 5.25pm on Monday afternoon. Two ambulances and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a car that had suffered very considerable damage after having rolled over.
“Judging by the damage to the bushes and trees at the side of the road, the car had left the road at least 50 yards from where it came to a rest, back on its wheels.
“Despite the damage, the man and woman in the car appear to have escaped serious injury.
“The 25 year old woman who was the front seat passenger was complaining of neck pain and was immobilised. The 24 year old man driving appeared uninjured but given what had happened, was also immobilised as a precaution. Both were taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment.”
