Friday 18th December 2015 – 7.35am – Murray MacGregor.

A middle aged woman has suffered a serious head injury after colliding with a moped outside a pub.

The unfortunate incident happened outside the Plough Inn, in King Street, in the Wellington area of Telford at just after 9.00pm on Thursday evening.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a BASICS doctor and the MERIT trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The collision took place right outside the pub and resulted in the moped rider coming office his machine.

“The woman in her 60s suffered a nasty head injury with a possible fracture to her skull. Due to the woman’s condition, the doctors decided that she should be taken to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital. The MERIT doctor travelled with her in the ambulance.

“The 19 year old moped rider was very shaken by the incident but was otherwise uninjured. His bike had suffered minimal damage. After being assessed by ambulance staff he was taken home by the police.”
