A woman has died and three other patients, including two children, have been taken to hospital following a road traffic collision yesterday afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 3.51pm to reports of a collision between a 4×4 pick-up and a lorry on Ashbourne Road, Leek. Three ambulances, two paramedic officers, a community first responder, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.

“The driver of the car, a man, and a girl who was a rear seat passenger, were both treated for injuries not believed to be serious before being taken to the same hospital in land ambulances.
