A car driver received advanced life support by ambulance staff this morning in Lichfield after the car he was driving collided with a lamppost.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Eastern Avenue in Lichfield at 8.30am today (Thursday). Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill responded to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A passing ambulance came across the incident three minutes after the 999 call was made to find the driver of a car, a man, in a critical condition. The crew commenced resuscitation on scene and, once joined by ambulance colleagues, they worked as a team to administer advanced life support and managed to restart the man’s heart. The man was taken, in a serious condition, by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Derby Hospital for further specialist care.”
