A driver has escaped serious injury despite his car ending upside down in a ditch in Stafford in the early hours of this morning.

The incident happened in Dartmouth Street, Stafford, shortly after midnight. Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a responder paramedic, a MERIT trauma doctor and two nearby BASICS doctors attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The car had ended up in a ditch at the side of the road and was on its roof when emergency services arrived.

“The driver and single occupant, a man in his 20s, was still in the car and unable to get out. Miraculously, ambulance staff found the man had suffered no apparent injuries.
