Staffordshire Police are appealing for witnesses after a fatal road traffic collision in Stafford last night (November 13).
Officers from the Collision Investigation Unit and the West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the A51, near the junction with Tolldish Lane, Great Haywood, at 8:45pm where the road was closed for several hours.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and a BASICS emergency doctor attended the incident.
The collision was between a black Audi A3 and a white Scania Tanker truck.
The driver of the Audi, a 26-year-old woman from Market Drayton, was taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital where she died as a result of her injuries.
The woman’s family have been informed but she has not yet been formally identified.
The driver of the Scania Tanker truck was uninjured.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a car which had been in a significant collision with a HGV.
“Ambulance staff and the two doctors began to administer trauma care to the woman who had sustained multiple serious injuries.
“The fire service worked carefully around them to cut away the wreckage to release her.
“Due to the damage caused to the car in the collision the extrication was prolonged but once the woman was released ambulance staff and the medics continued emergency interventions on scene to help stabilise her serious condition.”
If you have any information on the collision, please call Staffordshire Police on 101 quoting incident 803 of November 13.
