“He was lying on the ground and it quickly became apparent he had suffered serious injuries in the collision.

“Ambulance staff quickly began administering advanced trauma care before the man was anaesthetised by the doctor to stabilise his condition.

“The team then worked quickly to transfer the man to Royal Stoke University Hospital on blue lights and sirens with the hospital having been pre-alerted to the arrival of the man, who at the time was said to be in a critical condition."
