Team work between the emergency services at the scene of a single car RTC in Warwickshire meant a man with multiple serious injuries got the care he needed.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Gipsy Lane in Nuneaton at 12.40pm this afternoon (Sunday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor and critical care paramedic on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The car had been in collision with a tree causing significant damage to the car. The driver and single occupant, a man in his 20s, was trapped and had a number of serious injuries.
“Whilst the fire service worked to carefully release the man from the wreckage, ambulance staff and the doctor administered advanced drug therapy to him inside the enclosed space to help stabilise his serious condition.
“After around 45 minutes, the team of ambulance staff and fire fighters were able to carefully lift the man out of the car. He was then taken by land ambulance on alert to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire; the doctor and critical care paramedic travelled in the ambulance to continue trauma care.”
