A teenager has been seriously injured after being involved in a collision with a bus in Worcester this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Deansway, near the college, in Worcester at 2.33pm (Monday). An ambulance, a paramedic officer attended the scene and were joined by two Midlands Air Ambulances, one with a MERIT trauma doctor on board and the other staffed by critical care paramedics, which landed at nearby Worcester Racecourse.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a pedestrian, a 14-year-old girl, who was unconscious after being involved in a road traffic collision with a bus.
“Ambulance staff worked to quickly assess the girl and found she had sustained serious injuries. Whilst administering initial treatment, crews swiftly transferred the girl by land ambulance on blue lights to meet up with the awaiting air ambulance teams at the racecourse. The girl received further advanced trauma care from the doctor and critical care paramedics who stabilised her condition before she was airlifted to Bristol Children’s Hospital for further emergency treatment.”
