Saturday 19th December 2015 – 8.15am – Murray MacGregor.
A pedestrian who was in collision with a car has been anaesthetised at the scene of the incident.
The crash happened in Yates Avenue in Newbold on Avon near Rugby at about 11.25pm on Friday evening.
A rapid response vehicle was on scene within minutes of the 999 call and was backed up by an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance in a response car.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a man in his 40s who was unconscious. The collision had damaged the windscreen and side of the car.
“Although the man started to come round, due to the head and chest injuries he had sustained, the doctor anaesthetised him at the scene before he was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at University Hospital, Coventry & Warwickshire.
“Thankfully, the prognosis appears good.
“The driver of the car was uninjured.
“The Trust would like to thank the police officers from Rugby who assisted at the scene. Their help throughout the incident was outstanding.”
