A motorcyclist involved in a collision with a car received speedy trauma care after the incident was spotted by a passing ambulance crew.
An ambulance crew came across the collision at the junction of the A51 and Tolldish Lane, Great Haywood in Stafford at around 4.15pm yesterday (Tuesday). The crew called the Trust’s control room and requested assistance from a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Thankfully for the motorcyclist, the ambulance crew were quickly on hand. The man in his 20s had suffered a nasty lower leg and foot injury in the collision. He was given pain relief before his wounds were dressed and stabilised on scene.
“The man was then taken by air ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further specialist trauma care.
“A special thanks to Staffordshire firefighters and members of the public who, whilst ambulance staff treated the patient, kept a herd of cows away from the aircraft which had landed in a nearby field!”
