Fatal RTC in Stoke-on-Trent

Claire Brown – Tuesday 3rd November 2020 – 10.00am.

One man has died, and another has been injured following a single vehicle RTC in Stoke-on-Trent in the early hours of this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call at 4.02am (today) to reports of a car on its roof on Sandon Road, Meir, Stoke-on-Trent. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a North Staffordshire BASICS doctor were responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived, they found an overturned car with two occupants inside. The team worked closely with fire colleagues to rapidly extricate the driver, a man, to reach a passenger who was in more critical condition.

“Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the passenger, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“The driver was given treatment on scene for injuries not believed to be life-threatening before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further treatment.”
