“A passing ambulance came across the incident three minutes after the 999 call was made to find the driver of a car, a man, in a critical condition.

“The crew commenced resuscitation on scene and, once joined by ambulance colleagues, they worked as a team to administer advanced life support and managed to restart the man’s heart.

“The man was taken, in a serious condition, by land ambulance on blue lights to Royal Derby Hospital for further specialist care.”
