Leighton Buzzard, serious lorry and car incident – Magpas Helimedix fly to scene

At 2:43pm on 20th March, Magpas Helimedix (Doctor Nathan Howes and Paramedic Keir Rutherford) arrived in Leighton Buzzard via the Magpas Helimedix Air Ambulance. A lorry and a car were involved in a serious road traffic incident, leaving the occupants of the car trapped inside.

The Magpas Helimedix team worked alongside Fire & Rescue Service Crews, EEAST Ambulance Service Paramedic Crews and a HART Crew to remove the patients from inside the vehicle. The Magpas team assessed a woman (in her 60’s) who suffered head injuries, before she was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital in a land ambulance. The Helimedix also assessed a second woman (in her 20’s) who suffered a head injury, before she too was taken to John Radcliffe Hospital by land ambulance. The Magpas team assessed a third woman (in her 30’s) who suffered chest injuries and flew her to John Radcliffe Hospital, where on arrival she was in a stable condition.

Herts Air Ambulance, a South Central Ambulance Paramedic Crew and the Police were also present.

The Helicopter team who flew the Helimedix to the scene / the patient and the Helimedix to hospital was: Chief Pilot Richard Eastwood and Crew Member George Phillips.

Magpas Helimedix would like to say a special thank you to the EEAST Ambulance Service Paramedic Crews and the HART Crew for their excellent team work.

This is all the information we have.
