Roll-over RTC Leicestershire/Lincolnshire border
Members of two neighbouring BASICS Schemes; the East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme (EMICS) and the Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service (LIVES) worked closely with the East Midlands Ambulance Service and the Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service when a serious RTC occurred on the A607 on the Leicestershire/Lincolnshire border at about 21.30hrs last night (19th April). A car containing 4 young occupants came off the A607 between Croxton Kerrial and Waltham on the Wold, hit a road sign and rolled into a field 20 feet below the road. Two people were ejected from the vehicle, sustaining serious injuries. The driver also sustained serious injuries with the fourth occupant suffering minor injuries. Dr Leon Roberts of EMICS and LIVES team, Dr Kiki Steel and Tim Nuttall were all responded to the incident. The casualties were rapidly assessed and triaged, cared for on scene and their clinical priority for transfer established. All casualties were transferred to the new Regional Trauma Centre at Queens Medical Centre Nottingham.
