Man dies and woman injured in car crash near Lichfield

A man has died and a woman has been injured in a crash near Lichfield.

They were travelling in a car along Colliery Road in Brereton at 9.20pm last night (September 6) when the accident happened.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A car had reportedly left the road and collided with a tree. The driver, a man, was in cardiac arrest and was being given CPR by two off duty nurses and a police officer.

“Sadly, despite the best efforts of bystanders, ambulance crews and medics nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.

“The front seat passenger, a woman believed to be in her 30s, was trapped in the wreckage. Upon assessment, crews and the medics found she had suffered a head injury. They worked with the fire service to extricate her from the car before she was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board.

“The woman was transferred by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital North Staffordshire for further assessment and treatment.”
