Driver injured after car goes down embankment

Jordan Eggington – Friday 2nd July 2021 – 9.20am.

A man has suffered potentially serious injuries after a single vehicle RTC in Shropshire overnight, which saw his car leave the road and end up down an embankment.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 9:36pm to reports a car had collided with some street furniture before leaving the road at the junction of the A4548 and Ludlow Road in Bridgnorth. We sent a Community First Responder, two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived at the scene to find the car had travelled about 15 metres down the embankment, with the driver, a man, still trapped in the vehicle.

“Fire colleagues worked to remove the roof and driver door of the car in order for crews to safely assess the patient.

“The man was treated at the scene for potentially serious injuries and was conveyed to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on blue lights and sirens, with the MERIT team travelling onboard.”
