A DRIVER and her daughter had a lucky escape when the car they were travelling in overturned in a road traffic collision in Trentham last night (Monday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a two car collision on the A34 northbound near to Trentham Monkey Forest just before 8.45pm.

Two ambulances, two doctors and a paramedic attended the scene.

An ambulance service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two cars that had been in collision, one of which had come to rest on its side.

“Fortunately, the two patients in the overturned car escaped serious injury though the driver, a woman believed to be 50-years-old, had to be extricated with the help of the fire service.

“After being fully immobilised as a precaution, with the use of a neck collar and spinal board, she was assessed and taken to University Hospital North Staffordshire.

“Her daughter, reported to be 20-years-old, had managed to get out of the car by climbing through the now absent rear window and after assessment from a doctor was discharged at the scene before accompanying her mother to the hospital.

“The three patients in the second car all escaped injury.”
