Monday 11th April 2016 – 7.34pm – Murray MacGregor.
A teenage girl has been airlifted after suffering a serious leg injury after coming off her scooter and colliding with a telegraph pole.
The crash happened on the B5026 near the junction with Shut Lane at Croxton in Staffordshire at about 2.15pm on Monday afternoon.
A community first responder from the Eccleshall scheme was first on scene and was backed up by an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told that the bike was the only vehicle involved. It hadn’t suffered too serious damage but the rider, a teenage girl, had suffered a badly broken leg and was complaining of pelvic pain too.
“She was given pain relief, before being immobilised and had a splint attached to her leg. She was then flown to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
