A woman received vital trauma care from West Midlands Ambulance Service this afternoon after being involved in a collision with a bus.
The incident happened at the junction of Church Street and Parkfield Road in Stourbridge at 2.15pm (Friday). An ambulance, a community paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene. The helicopter landed at a nearby school and the aircrew made their way to the scene by foot.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The woman, believed to be in her 50s, had sustained a serious head injury in the collision. The ambulance crews and the doctor worked to stabilise her condition by administering trauma care at the roadside. Once immobilised and stable, the woman was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to continue treatment en route.”
