A man has sadly died following a road traffic collision in Coventry this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received a call from the police reporting a serious road traffic collision on the A45 Stonebridge Highway in Coventry at 10.27am today (Tuesday). Three ambulances, two paramedic officers, a BASICS emergency doctor, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance together with a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic attended the scene. One of the Trust’s non-emergency Patient Transport Service ambulances came across the incident and stopped to render aid on scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found fire and police colleagues administering CPR to the driver of one car, a man, who was in a critical condition. The team of ambulance staff worked quickly to provide advanced life support to the man but sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead a short time later on scene.
“The driver of a second vehicle involved in the collision, a man, was assessed and found to have sustained injuries not thought to be serious. He was treated on scene before being conveyed by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further checks.”
