Thursday 30th June 2016 – 9.50am – Jamie Arrowsmith.


A man has been airlifted to one of the region’s major trauma centres after his car crashed into a tree yesterday (Wednesday), a collision which saw the engine thrown from the vehicle.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the B4385 in Little Brampton, near to Bishop’s Castle, just before 4.20pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.


A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews discovered a car that had been seriously damaged in the collision with its engine lying in the middle of the road having been ripped from the car.

“There was one patient, a man who was treated for a fractured jaw, chest and abdominal injuries.

“He was given pain relief at the scene before being carefully moved on to the nearby air ambulance, which had landed in a field, before being flown to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
