Woman seriously injured after Bewdley car collision
3:20pm Monday 22nd October 2012 in Local
A WOMAN has been seriously injured after the car she was driving collided with another vehicle in Bewdley this morning.
The incident happened on Heightington Road, between Heightington and Bliss Gate, shortly before 10am.
Two responder paramedics, a paramedic area support officer, a BASICS medic and an ambulance crew attended.
Due to bad weather grounding air ambulances, a paramedic and a MERIT trauma doctor from the Cosford air base responded in a car to the incident.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival crews found two cars which had been involved in a collision. One car had sustained significant damage and its driver, a woman in her 60s, was still in the vehicle.
“Crews immediately assessed the woman and found she had sustained multiple injuries and her condition was deteriorating. Due to this, crews and the BASICS doctor rapidly extricated her from the vehicle while she continued to receive medical treatment.
“The woman was given pain relief, oxygen and was fully immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and splints.
“The MERIT doctor administered a light sedative to help stabilise her condition further before she was taken by land ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital [in Birmingham] and the doctor continued treatment en-route.
“The driver of the second vehicle did not require hospital treatment.”
