A MOTORIST had to be cut free from the wreckage of the car he was driving hit a tree in Penkridge overnight.
The crash happened on Levedale Road just after midnight today.
Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Merit trauma doctor were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car that had collided with a tree and overturned.
“The roof was removed so that the driver, a 24 year old man, could be removed safely from the car after suffering a dislocated hip. He also had a reduced level of consciousness.
“He was taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire with the doctor travelling with the crew.
“There were two 17-year-old women in the car. One had managed to get out before ambulance staff arrived and had a facial injury.
“The other was immobilised as a precaution due to the level of damage to the car. Both travelled in the same ambulance to University Hospital North Staffordshire.”
