Despite the best efforts of police, members of the public and ambulance staff, a man involved in a collision with a lorry has died.
The incident happened on the A38 between Weeford and Swinfin just before 11.00am this morning (Thursday). A paramedic area support officer, an advanced paramedic, an ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When the ambulance service arrived they found the police and members of the public administering CPR to a pedestrian who was in traumatic cardiac arrest.
“The pedestrian, a man, had reportedly been involved in a collision with a lorry. Paramedics and the doctor took over resuscitation efforts. Sadly, after more than 30 minutes of advanced life support nothing more could be done to save the man’s life and he was confirmed dead on scene.
