Paramedics resuscitate driver after four vehicle crash

A man is in a critical condition following a collision involving four vehicles in Cannock.

Emergency services, including the Midlands Air Ambulance, were called to the incident involving two cars, a van and a lorry on the A460 Lodge Lane in Cannock at 6.51pm yesterday (22 November).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “During the 999 call, the call assessor was told that police officers were performing CPR on a patient involved in the collision.

"When ambulance staff arrived at the incident they found police colleagues administering excellent CPR to the driver of one car, a man, who was in cardiac arrest. Ambulance staff and the doctors quickly took over resuscitation efforts and after administering advanced life support at the roadside the man was resuscitated.

"The team worked quickly to transfer the man to an ambulance so that he could be taken, on blue lights and sirens, to Royal Stoke University Hospital with a doctor on board. The hospital was pre-alerted to the arrival of the man who, at the time, was said to be in a critical condition.

“A second car driver, a man in his 60s, suffered chest pain in the collision. He was given treatment on scene before being taken to Walsall Manor Hospital. The lorry and van driver, both men, were assessed on scene by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment and were discharged on scene.”
