Paramedics battled to save man who died in horror Coventry crash

Ambulance staff battled to save the life of a man who sadly died after a horror car crash in Coventry. West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) has confirmed that a large number of medics were sent to the scene of the two car collision in Firefly Road.[1] Three ambulances, two paramedic officers, a MERIT trauma doctor with a Critical Care Paramedic and the Warwickshire[2] and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car were sent to the scene.

They fought to save the severely injured 33-year-old man – who was driving a white Seat Leon Cupra – but sadly he was pronounced dead at the scene. “On arrival we discovered four patients, one of whom, a man, was found to be in a critical condition,” a WMAS spokesperson said. “Sadly, despite the best efforts of ambulance staff, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.” A passenger in the Seat Leon Cupra, a man in his 30s, was also treated by paramedics before being taken to hospital, as were two people in the second car, a blue Citroen C3.

“A further man, and two women, were treated for serious injuries before being taken to University Hospital Coventry[4] and Warwickshire.,” the WMAS spokesperson added. CoventryLive has contacted West Midlands Police[5] for an update on the two women and a man who are in hospital. The man who sadly lost his life has yet to be publicly named.
