share close

An ambulance technician has died after an object struck the vehicle’s windscreen while responding to a 999 call in Herefordshire.

His crewmate, the driver, was also injured in the incident and required hospital treatment before being discharged.

It happened at the junction of Moreton Road and the A49, just north of Hereford at 8am this morning, West Midlands Ambulance Service said.

“Multiple resources” were sent to the scene, including two emergency ambulance crews, paramedic officers, the Midlands Air Ambulance and two Mercia Accident Rescue Service doctors.

Despite “everyone’s best efforts, nothing could be done to save our colleague, who was the front passenger”, a spokeswoman said.

He was confirmed dead at the scene.

“This is truly awful news, and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and colleagues of those involved at this very difficult time,” said West Midlands Ambulance Service Chief Executive, Anthony Marsh.

“I am enormously proud of all the staff and the university students as part of their clinical placement that worked so hard and professionally to try to save our colleague. I am sorry that despite their best efforts, he could not be saved.”
