Fatal RTC in Rugeley

Thursday 4th July – 2.30pm – Claire Brown.

A man has sadly died and two other people have been treated by ambulance staff following a two vehicle collision in Staffordshire this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call from an off-duty volunteer community first responder (CFR) at 10.19am to reports of a two vehicle collision on the A460 Hednesford Road at the junction of Stile Cop Road, Rugeley, Staffordshire, at 10.19am (Thursday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and two Midlands Air Ambulances of which one had a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a car and a 4×4 vehicle which had been in collision. The driver of the car, a man, was in a critical condition and was being cared for by the CFR and bystanders. Crews worked as a team to immediately commence advanced life support but sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene a short time later.

“Two other patients involved in the collision were described as ‘walking wounded’ and had sustained minor injuries. They were assessed by ambulance staff but didn’t require hospital treatment.”
