Sunday 25th October 2015 – 7.10pm – Murray MacGregor.

The driver of a car involved in a collision has been anaesthetised at the scene after suffering serious injuries.

The crash happened near the Co-op on Keelings Lane in the Northwood area of Stoke on Trent at lunchtime on Sunday.

A rapid response vehicle arrived four minutes after the call at 12.08pm. The paramedic was backed up by three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a doctor from the North Staffordshire BASICS Doctors scheme.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The silver and white cars involved had both suffered significant front end damage in the collision.

“The most seriously injured patient was the driver of the white car. The 35 year old was semi-conscious and had suspected traumatic abdominal injuries and a head injury.

“After assessing his condition, the doctor anaesthetised him at the scene before he was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“There were two men in their 30s in the silver car. Both had managed to get out of the vehicle but were suffering from lower leg and ankle injuries. Both were taken to the same hospital.”
