Claire Brown – Tuesday 15th February 2022 – 9.10am.
A woman and a child have sadly died in a road traffic collision in north Shropshire this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a car and a HGV on the A41 near Lavender Cottage in Sutton Heath between Tern Hill and Newport at 0.42am today (Tuesday). Three ambulances, three paramedic officers, a local community first responder, HART paramedics, a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic and two BASICS emergency doctors responded to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The two occupants of the car, a woman and a young child, were in a critical condition. Crews worked quickly as a team to provide advanced trauma care with assistance from police and fire colleagues.
“Tragically, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the woman and child and they were both confirmed deceased on scene.
“The driver of the HGV, a man, was assessed by ambulance staff but didn’t require hospital treatment and was discharged on scene.”
