Two taken to major trauma centre after RTC

Murray MacGregor – Monday 8th February 2020 – 8.30am.

Two women have been taken to a major trauma centre after a single vehicle crash in the early hours of this morning (Monday).

The crash happened on the A41 outside Dovecote Bletchley Court close to the dual carriageway at around 4.10am.

Two ambulances, a paramedic office and the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a car that had rolled over but had ended up on its wheels.

“The front seat passenger was trapped so they immediately requested the fire service be responded.

“The woman was trapped for a little over half an hour while ambulance staff worked with firefighters to extricate her.

“The woman had suffered multiple injuries.  After treatment at the scene, she was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke Uiversty Hospital where medics were awaiting her arrival.

“The driver, also a woman, had suffered less serious injuries but due to the level of damage to the car, was also taken to the same major trauma centre as a precaution.”
