Coventry RTC involving car and pedestrian

Jordan Eggington – Friday 23rd October – 8.45am.

A girl has been treated for potentially life-threatening injuries after a collision in Coventry last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 6:05pm (Thursday) to reports of an RTC involving a car and pedestrian on Tamworth Road. Three ambulance crews, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a girl, the pedestrian, in a critical condition after coming into collision with a car, with bystander CPR already in progress. Staff then took over in administering life support to the patient whilst getting her on to the ambulance. She was then taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on blue lights and sirens with the doctor and critical care paramedic on board continuing treatment.

“The second patient, a man, believed to be the driver of the car, was also treated at the scene and conveyed to UHCW for further assessment.”
