Road Traffic Collision on A52 Bramcote
This evening around 1700 we were called to the A52 near to Thorsby Road Bramcote to a report of a Road Traffic Collision. An 18 year old male had been hit by a car and was subsequently trapped under the vehicle.
Along with colleagues from East Midlands Ambulance Service and Nottinghamshire Police, we freed the male using our high pressure air bag equipment. He was then taken to hospital, we do not believe his injuries are serious or life threatening.
Watch Manager Burton who attended this incident said “We have seen a number of road traffic collisions across Nottinghamshire this month, as the nights are darker and then weather has turned grim, it’s important that we all look out for each other. Our top tips are Think speed, keep your distance, don’t drink and drive, drive according to the road and weather conditions and wear a seatbelt.
He added “I hope the young lad makes a speedy recovery and that today’s incident doesn’t spoil his Christmas”
Following this incident, we were called away to attend a fire alarm sounding in a high rise block of flats and then a bin fire, both in Canning Circus.
