A man was airlifted to a major trauma centre last night after he was involved in a road traffic collision.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Crooked Bridge Road and Prospect Road in Stafford at around 4.50pm yesterday (Tuesday). An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Tatenhill attended; one had a MERIT trauma doctor on board.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The emergency services arrived to find a cyclist and a car which had been in a collision. The cyclist, a man, was initially trapped underneath the car and, once freed, ambulance staff were able to fully assess his condition. The man had suffered multiple injuries which required advanced trauma care by the doctor and ambulance staff at the roadside.
“The man’s condition was stabilised before he was airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital, a specialist major trauma centre, for further care.”
