Fatal RTC in Alton

Claire Brown – Thursday 12th December 2019 – 10.00am.

A man has died following a two-car collision in Stoke-on-Trent last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Cheadle Road in Alton, Stoke-on-Trent, at 4.56pm yesterday (Wednesday). Three ambulances, a community first responder, an advanced paramedic, a paramedic officer, a critical care car from the Midlands Air Ambulance and a BASICS emergency doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived on scene to find a serious RTC involving two cars. The driver of one car, a man, was in a critical condition and quickly received advanced life support from the team of ambulance staff. Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“The driver of the second car, a man, was already out of the vehicle when ambulance staff arrived. He received trauma care on scene for serious injuries before being taken on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further emergency treatment.

“A third man involved in the collision was described as ‘walking wounded’ and was given treatment on scene before being taken to the same hospital as a precaution.”
