Dog walker suffers head injury following Ledbury collision
9:23am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in News
A DOG walker suffered a head injury and broken leg after being in collision with a car in Ledbury yesterday.
The woman, thought to be in her 50s, was walking two dogs along the B4214 Bromyard Road just after 5pm.
An off duty paramedic was quickly on the scene before the patient was taken to the Major Trauma Centre at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
“On arrival, crews found a woman estimated to be in her 50s who was suffering from a potentially serious head injury and a broken leg,” said a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman.
“Initially, the woman was semi-conscious but as ambulance staff worked on the patient, she started to come round.
“The man driving the car was uninjured.”
Ambulance staff asked for a vet to be sent to the scene as they were worried one of the dogs was injured.
