Friday 24th November 2017 – 8.30am – Jamie Arrowsmith.
A man has been anaesthetised and taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres after he was ejected from his car in a single vehicle collision this morning.
The car rolled in the incident which took place at the junction of the A49 and A5 in Upton Magna, Shrewsbury, with West Midlands Ambulance Service receiving a 999 call at 5.20am. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT trauma doctor were dispatched to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered a man lying on the roadside after being ejected from the car. The man, believed to be in his 20s, had suffered multiple serious injuries.
“He received specialist trauma care at the scene before the crew arranged to meet the doctor enroute to hospital.
“Upon doing so, the man was anaesthetised to stabilise his condition before the doctor travelled with the patient on the back of the ambulance to help continue treatment for the remainder of the journey to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.
“A second man, believed to be in his 30s, had managed to get himself out of the vehicle and was treated for minor injuries before being transported to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.”
