A woman has been airlifted to hospital after her car overturned in a single vehicle road traffic collision this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Stubby Lane in Draycott in the Clay, Uttoxeter, shortly before 2.15pm and sent an ambulance, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance crew from Staffordshire, who attended in a rapid response vehicle, to the scene. The Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance was also in attendance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a woman, thought to be in her 50s, who was still in her car which had come to rest on its side on a grass verge.

“Crews assessed the woman before working closely with colleagues from the police and fire services to free her through the window of the car.

“She was treated by medics at the scene for serious injuries and once they had managed to stabilise her condition, she was moved on to the air ambulance, which had landed in a nearby field.

“She was then airlifted to Queens Medial Centre in Nottingham for further treatment.”
