61-year-old suffers head injury after quad bike fall

A 61-year-old man has suffered a head injury after falling from a quad bike in Staffordshire.

He reportedly knocked himself unconscious after the fall, which happened in Yoxall, near Burton-on-Trent this afternoon.

A land and an air ambulance were sent to the scene to help the man, who is now be treated at one of the region's major trauma centres.

Crews arrived to find a 61-year-old man who was in a confused and agitated state after falling from his quad bike that reportedly tipped over.

It is believed he was initially knocked unconscious for approximately five minutes in the incident and following assessment from paramedics he was treated on scene for an isolated head injury.

He was then transported by land ambulance to University Hospital North Staffordshire, with the air crew travelling with him to continue treatment en-route.

The nature of the incident meant the man’s injuries could have been much more serious and it is somewhat fortunate that they did not prove to be so
