Despite their car overturning after colliding with a wall, two men and a woman miraculously avoided serious injuries in Staffordshire in the early hours.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Station Road in Cheddleton, Leek shortly before 1.00am (Sunday). Two ambulances, two BASICS emergency doctors, a responder paramedic, a local community first responder and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived, all three occupants were already out of the wreckage. One passenger, a man, had initially been unconscious immediately after the collision but quickly regained consciousness. He was assessed by ambulance staff and was immobilised as a precaution.
“The driver, a woman, had helped to get the unconscious passenger out of the car before we arrived. She too was given a top to toe assessment and was also immobilised. Both were taken by land ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment.
“The third occupant, a man, was uninjured and didn’t require hospital treatment.
“Considering the type of collision, it was lucky that no one was more seriously hurt.”
