Man anaesthetised at scene of RTC in Stoke


Saturday 30th January 2016 – 10.20am – Claire Brown.

Two doctors and ambulance staff ended up anaesthetising a man after his car ended up on its roof in Stoke on Trent in the early hours.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a car on its roof near to the junction of Keelings Road and Cromer Road, by Northwood Stadium shortly before 5.00am this morning (Saturday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and two BASICS emergency doctors attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When emergency services arrived they found a car on its roof and a man lying on the floor near to the vehicle.

“The man, who had sustained a serious injury, needed advanced trauma care by medics and ambulance staff at the roadside. Medics took the decision to anaesthetise him to stabilise his condition before he was alerted to University Hospital North Staffordshire for further specialist care.

“The road remained closed for several hours following the incident but has since reopened.”
