A man has been airlifted after falling unconscious after being involved in a crash. It happened outside the Tesco on Birmingham Road, Shenstone, Lichfield at 2.15pm on Thursday afternoon (September 1). A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found two cars that had been involved in a collision. “Although both had substantial damage, the safety systems had done their job and the passenger compartments were largely undamaged. “All three occupants of the two cars had managed to get out of the vehicles themselves, but the passenger in the red car, a 74-year-old man collapsed shortly after getting out of the car and was said to have been unconscious for a short time. “Given the symptoms, crews took no chances and airlifted him to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital so that he could be assessed fully for the cause of the collapse. “The elderly woman in the same car, who was driving, was upset but otherwise uninjured. “The woman driving the silver car was shaken up by what happened but again was uninjured and was also discharged at the scene.”
