A car which left a road and ended up in a field last night in Staffordshire has left a man in a serious condition.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call from the police reporting a single vehicle collision on the A50 near to Draycott-in-the-Moors just before 11.00pm (Monday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a BASICS doctor were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival ambulance staff found a car which had left the carriageway, travelled up an embankment and ended up in a field. The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his 40s, sustained serious injuries which required advanced treatment by ambulance staff on scene before being rushed to Royal Stoke University Hospital on blue lights. Treatment continued en route to A&E.
“The passenger of the car, a man in his 20s, had self-extricated from the vehicle and was described as ‘walking wounded’. However, due to the nature of the collision and the damage cause, the man was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
