A child has been seriously injured following a road traffic collision in Stafford last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a car and a pedestrian in a car park off Newport Road, Stafford at around 5.50pm yesterday evening (Tuesday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the critical care car from the Midlands Air Ambulance base at Cosford with a MERIT doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance crews arrived they found the pedestrian, a boy, in a serious condition already receiving first aid by emergency service colleagues and bystanders. Ambulance staff and the doctor worked as a team to administer advanced trauma care to the boy before he was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further emergency care.”
