The incident happened outside the Beech Hotel in Derby Road, Stretton in Staffordshire, just after 6.30pm on Monday evening.

The driver a 31 year old man had managed to get himself out of the car, but there was a ‘bullseye’ in the windscreen. He initially appeared to be uninjured but his level of consciousness dropped as he was being assessed which indicated a head injury. The man was also complaining of pain in his lower left leg. He was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution.

“After an assessment, it was agreed that he should go to a major trauma centre. Given the proximity to the Tattenhill airfield, the ambulance took the man to the Midlands Air Ambulance based there and the man was then flown to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
