Three in Royal Stoke after A500 smash between HGV and car

A woman suffered 'potentially serious injuries' in an A500 crash which has left three people in hospital. Emergency services were called to a collision between a car and truck on the D-road at the turn-off for Stoke this morning.

Now West Midlands Ambulance Service has confirmed a man and two women were taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital following the crash, which occurred just before 10.10am. And one of the patients is said to have suffered 'potentially serious injuries'.

Two ambulance crews were sent to the scene and it is believed lane closures were put in place. A spokeswoman for the ambulance service said: "We were called to a road traffic collision involving a car and a HGV at the junction of the A500 and Glebe Street.

"Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene. Upon arrival we found three occupants of the car, a woman who was the driver and a man and woman who were passengers.

"The female passenger was assessed and had sustained potentially serious injuries which were not life threatening. The driver and male passenger were assessed and had sustained injuries not believed to be serious. All three received treatment from ambulance staff at the scene before being conveyed to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further assessment.”
