Monday, 24th April 2017

THREE people have been treated at the scene of a collision between a car and a stationary car before being transported to hospital last night (Sunday).

Last night, Tamworth Informed reported how the East bound carriageway of the A5 had been closed by Police between the Mile Oak and Ventura Park exits.

Staffordshire Police and West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A5 just before 11.10pm.

Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a rapid response paramedic were sent to the scene by WMAS.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service also attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived at the scene to discover three patients who had been injured in the collision.

“There were two patients in the stationary vehicle, both men in their 20s.

“The passenger got himself out of the car by climbing out of the window. He was treated for chest and arm pain.

“The driver, who managed to get himself out of the car, was treated for back pain and leg pain.

“The driver of the second car, a woman believed to be in her 20s, was out of the car on arrival of ambulance staff. She was treated for minor back injuries and a hand injury.

“All three patients were then transported to Good Hope Hospital for further treatment.”

The road remained closed for some time whilst recovery and repair work took place.
