Elderly man given trauma care in Stourbridge

The Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford joined land crews in Stourbridge earlier this afternoon to provide trauma care to an elderly man who had been involved in a road traffic collision.

West Midlands Police requested medical support shortly before 12.30pm today, reporting a collision involving a car and a pedestrian outside their police station on New Road, Stourbridge.

An ambulance, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene. A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said:

“Police officers were already on scene providing first aid treatment to the man following the collision. Upon assessment by ambulance staff, it became clear that the man had sustained a serious head injury.

“The team worked quickly to provide trauma care before he was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to the awaiting helicopter which had landed on a nearby rugby pitch.”

The man was then airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and was said to be in a critical condition on arrival in A&E.
