The woman, in her 40s, was seriously injured in the crash on Dawley Green Way in Dawley, Telford, at around 3pm yesterday.

The fire service, police, two ambulances and an air ambulance all attended the scene near the Heath Hill Roundabout, where a silver Vauxhall Astra had ended up on its side.

A child, who was also involved in the crash, suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital.

Police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward.

The woman was taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for treatment, with critical care staff from the air ambulance travelling in the land ambulance to give advance life support during the journey.

"We sent the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a doctor and critical care paramedic on board, two land ambulances and a paramedic officer to the scene.

"On crews arrival, they found a woman in a critical condition. Staff worked quickly to administer advanced life support on scene before taking her by land ambulance on blue lights and sirens to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further treatment.

"The Midlands Air Ambulance crew travelled with the patient to continue advanced treatment. The second patient involved in the RTC, a child, was treated for minor injuries and also taken to hospital."
