Two car drivers have been injured, one seriously, following a road traffic collision near Newport last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A41 in Woodcote at 7.15pm (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a MERIT Trauma doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival ambulance staff found two cars that had been involved in a serious collision. The driver of one car, a female, was already out of the vehicle. She was assessed on scene and found to have sustained injuries not thought to be serious. She was taken to New Cross Hospital for further checks.
“The driver of the second car, a man, was trapped due to the damage caused in the collision. Ambulance staff administered trauma care to the man whilst working closely with the fire service to carefully extricate him from the car. The man, who was in a serious condition, was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to continue advanced care during the journey.”
