Two people have been taken to the hospital, one of them by air ambulance, following a collision involving a lorry, a coach and a car this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the northbound A38 in Barton under Needwood, near Burton-on-Trent, shortly before 11.35am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find three vehicles that had been in a collision, all of which contained a single occupant.

“The most seriously injured patient was the coach driver, who was trapped inside as a result of the collision.

“Ambulance crews carefully monitored and assessed the man, believed to be in his 30s, whilst he was cut free by the fire service.

“He was treated for suspected leg and pelvic injuries, immobilised and airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“The car driver, a man thought to be in his 50s, managed to get himself out and was treated for a chest injury before being taken to Queens Hospital, Burton.

“The lorry driver, a man, was uninjured in the incident.”
