A man was airlifted to hospital and three other people were injured after a car crash near Stone last night.
The impact of the two vehicle crash sent one of the cars careering into in a field and left the other with major damage.
The crash happened at the junction of the B5027 Uttoxeter Road and the B5066 Hilderstone Roa /Sandon Road to the east of Stone just before 8pm on Monday June 30.
An off duty paramedic came across the crash and stopped to offer assistance. Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There was a mother and son in the first car which ended up in the field. The mother, who was estimated to be in her 20s had a suspected fractured right wrist.
“Her seven year old son was essentially uninjured after being protected by his car seat. He was complaining of some seatbelt pain across his chest. Both were taken to Stafford Hospital.
“There were two men in the second car. It had suffered very significant damage to its front and had leaked fuel and water all over the road.
“The first man who was in his 30s had suffered a head injury and was airlifted to University Hospital North Staffordshire, though his injuries are not thought too serious.
“The second man, who was in his 20s had shoulder pain and was clearly shaken by the incident. He was taken by land ambulance to the same hospital.”
