A man and a woman received trauma care at the scene of a two-vehicle road traffic collision in Shrewsbury yesterday afternoon.
The ambulance service received a 999 call at 1.23pm to reports of a two vehicle RTC on the B4386 between Shrewsbury and Cruckton yesterday (Sunday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic on board were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a two vehicle RTC. Police and bystanders, including an off-duty nurse, had been providing first aid to two patients involved in the collision prior to the service arriving.
“One man was in a critical condition and crews commenced advanced life support on scene. They stabilised his condition before he was conveyed on blue lights to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further trauma care; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to help continue treatment on route.
“The second patient, a woman, had sustained serious injuries in the collision and received advanced trauma care from the team of ambulance staff before being conveyed on blue lights to the same hospital for further emergency care.”
