Paramedics treat woman and two children in Sandyford smash

Paramedics have assessed a woman and two children after a smash on a busy Potteries road. Emergency services were called out to High Street, in Sandyford - near McDonald's - following the crash yesterday afternoon.

StokeonTrentLive reported how police, paramedics and firefighters were all at the scene where they found a silver Kia and a grey Skoda had crashed. The collision, which occurred at around 2.30pm, triggered delays on the nearby Reginald Mitchell Way as emergency services dealt with the incident.

Today West Midlands Ambulance Service has confirmed a woman and two children from one car were assessed - before being discharged at the scene.

An ambulance service spokeswoman said: "We were called to reports of a road traffic collision at the junction of Shelford Road and High Street. An ambulance was sent to the scene where, on arrival, crews discovered two cars had been involved in a collision. A woman and two children from one car were assessed by ambulance staff before being discharged at the scene. The driver of the second car, a man, was treated for minor injuries but did not wish to go to hospital and so was given self-care advice and discharged at the scene."

A spokesman for Staffordshire Police said: "We went to High Street, Sandyford, following a collision involving a silver Kia and a grey Skoda. A man, the driver of the Kia, along with a woman and two children, from the Skoda, were assessed at the scene by paramedics from West Midlands Ambulance Service but did not need treatment. The driver of the Skoda, a man, stayed at the scene to help us with our enquiries."
