A young boy has died and a woman has suffered serious injuries following a road traffic collision last night (Sunday).
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a car and pedestrians at 9.03pm on Stoney Stanton Road in Coventry. Four ambulances, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a young boy who had suffered serious injuries in the collision.
“Ambulance crews administered specialist trauma care which continued enroute to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. However, shortly after arrival it sadly became apparent nothing could be done to save him and was confirmed deceased.
“A second patient, a woman believed to be in her 30s, was also treated for multiple injuries, including to her leg, and was taken to the same hospital in a serious condition.”
