Sunday 25th October 2015 – 8.35pm – Murray MacGregor.
Two cars that collided on a corner have both spun into hedges some distance apart.
The incident happened close to Hilltop Farm on Stafford Road, Lawnhead at around 3.10pm on Sunday afternoon.
Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a community first responder from the Eccleshall scheme were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Judging by the skid marks on the road, the cars collided on a corner and then spun into the hedge at the side of the road some distance apart. Both vehicles had suffered considerable front offside damage.
“The 35 year old driver of the Astra was complaining of pain in both wrists. Due to the level of damage he was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to County Hospital, Stafford.
There were a couple in the Navara involved. The driver, a man of about 40 years, managed to get out of the 4×4 but collapsed in road due to a broken ankle. He was immobilised before being taken to hospital in Stafford.
The woman in the car, who was a similar age, was complaining of chest injuries from the seatbelt. Again as a precaution, she was immobilised and was also taken to County Hospital.
“As crews were working at the scene, they had a near miss when another car came round the corner and narrowly avoided colliding with one of the ambulance vehicles.”
