Air ambulance crews treat men after Long Sutton crash
Air ambulance crew cared for a man who was seriously injured in a Long Sutton crash yesterday.
Gedney Road was closed following a collision between a van and car, a Skoda and Vauxhall, just after 6am yesterday (Thursday, September 19).
Magpas Doctor Mike Thompson and Paramedic Steve Chambers arrived in Long Sutton via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle just after 7am.
The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed two patients at the scene.
The first man, in his 30s, had suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries and was left in the care of an EMAS Ambulance Service paramedic crew.
The second patient, a man in his 50s, suffered multiple serious injuries and the doctor-paramedic team sedated him at the scene in order to protect his injuries.
They then requested the assistance of the Magpas Air Ambulance day team, Doctor David Leverton and Paramedic Andy Ormiston, to airlift the patient to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, where he was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.
The helicopter crew who flew the patient and medical team were Pilot Chris Sherriff and Technical Crew Member Rob Davies.
Lincolnshire Police and Fire and Rescue Service were also in attendance.
