Jamie Arrowsmith – Thursday 18th February 2021 – 10.05am.

Two men were taken to hospital after receiving treatment from ambulance staff at the scene of a road traffic collision involving a van and a car last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Ashbourne Road, Uttoxeter at 6.57pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Car to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a total of four patients.

“The van driver, a man, was trapped as a result of the collision and ambulance staff worked closely alongside colleagues from the fire service to cut him free. He received treatment for potentially serious injuries before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital on blue lights and sirens.

“The driver of the car, also a man, got himself out of his vehicle and was treated for injuries not believed to be serious before being taken to the same hospital. A teenage male and a boy who were travelling in the car were also assessed but did not require treatment.”
