EARLY MORNING FATAL CRASH Tuesday 18th October 2016 – 10.36am
A man has died after an early morning crash.
It happened just before 6.45am this morning on the A518 Newport to Stafford road about half a mile from Newport in Shropshire.
Two ambulances were sent to the scene along with a paramedic area support officer and the aircrew from the Midlands Air Ambulance at Cosford, including a trauma doctor, who responded in a car.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars that had suffered significant damage.
“Other motorists were attempting CPR on the driver of one car. Ambulance staff took over and carried out advanced life support on the middle aged man, but sadly his injuries were too severe and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The 43 year old man driving the other car had managed to get out before ambulance crews arrived. He was treated for fractures to his right collar bone and left thumb. He was taken by ambulance to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.”
