Man dies after fatal crash in Cannock


A 33 year-old man has died in hospital following a collision on the A460 Lodge Lane in Cannock on Wednesday.

The crash involved two cars, a van and a lorry.

Three ambulances, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor, BASICS doctor and Midlands Air Ambulance went to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “During the 999 call, the call assessor was told that police officers were performing CPR on a patient involved in the collision.

“When ambulance staff arrived at the incident they found police colleagues administering excellent CPR to the driver of one car, a man, who was in cardiac arrest.

“Ambulance staff and the doctors quickly took over resuscitation efforts and after administering advanced life support at the roadside the man was resuscitated.

“The team worked quickly to transfer the man to an ambulance so that he could be taken, on blue lights and sirens, to Royal Stoke University Hospital with a doctor on board.

“A second car driver, a man in his 60s, suffered chest pain in the collision. He was given treatment on scene before being taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.

“The lorry and van driver, both men, were assessed on scene by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment and were discharged on scene.”

 The driver that was taken to Royal Stoke Hospital passed away following the collision and his family are being supported by specially trained officers.

Officers from Staffordshire Police Collision Investigation Unit are keen to hear from any witnesses or drivers with any dash cam footage of the incident.
