M1, Newport Pagnell, severe multi vehicle collision – Magpas Air Ambulance called to scene
At 4:25am this morning (26th), a Magpas Air Ambulance enhanced Doctor and Paramedic arrived at the M1 southbound (between Junctions 15 and 14) via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle. They had been called to treat a patient who had suffered serious injuries, following a multi vehicle collision involving a minibus and two lorries.
The Magpas medical team placed the patient under general anaesthetic at the scene (providing them with A&E level care), before accompanying them to Birmingham Hospital (monitoring their condition all the way). The patient was in a critical condition upon arrival.
Three other patients were treated and taken to hospital by the ambulance services at the scene.
EMAS Ambulance Service paramedic crews (Northamptonshire division), Thames Valley Police, EEAST Ambulance Service paramedic crews, a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), a National Inter-agency Liaison Officer (NILO), a doctor from the East Midlands Immediate Care Scheme, a doctor and paramedic who were off duty at the time of the incident and responded as Medical First Responders – and South Central Ambulance Service were all also in attendance.
Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by this deeply tragic incident.
Anyone with any further information about this should call the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 – quoting URN 203 of 26/8. Thank you.
