Saturday 20th February 2016 – 7.43pm – Murray MacGregor.

A woman who fell into a road and collided with a car has been airlifted to a major trauma centre with a potentially serious head injury.

The incident happened at about 1.45pm on Saturday outside Monkmoor Stores in Monkmoor Road in Shrewsbury.

A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with the MERIT trauma doctor on board were sent to the scene. The aircraft landed in a nearby park.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The woman, who is believed to be in her 30s, had just come out of the shop when the incident happened.

“Due to her ‘disorientated’ state, it was difficult to assess her condition, but she had clearly suffered a head injury.

“She was immobilised and, due to her condition, was anaesthetised at the scene before being airlifted to the major trauma centre at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“The car driver was uninjured.”
