Last night (13th) the Magpas Air Ambulance medical team were called to two serious road traffic collisions on the M11 in Essex.
At 8:07pm Magpas Doctor Scott Knapp and Paramedic Dan Read arrived on the M11 near Epping via a Magpas Air Ambulance rapid response vehicle. They had been called to treat a young man who had been injured in a collision between a car and a tree.
The Magpas enhanced medical team assessed the patient (in his teens) who had sustained multiple serious injuries and gave him advanced pain relief at the scene (providing him with A&E level care), before accompanying him to the Royal London Hospital via land ambulance. The patient was in a serious but stable condition upon arrival.
A few hours later at 11pm, the Magpas medical team responded to another incident on the M11 near Harlow – a collision between two lorries and a car, where a patient (in his 40’s) had sustained multiple, serious injuries.
Doctor Scott and Paramedic Dan provided the man with A&E level care there and then and accompanied him to Addenbrooke’s Hospital via land ambulance, where he was in a very serious but stable condition upon arrival.
Throughout the night the Magpas Air Ambulance team worked alongside multiple emergency services crews including a team from East Anglian Air Ambulance, EEAST paramedic crews, Essex Police, Essex Fire and Rescue Service and a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART).
