A man suffered serious injuries after a lorry overturned on the A1 yesterday.
At around 4.35pm air ambulance Magpas Helimedix arrived at the A1 near Roxton, via the Magpas Rapid Response BMW, after a lorry came off the road, overturned and landed on its side.
The Magpas team assessed a man in his 30s, who suffered serious injuries to his arm.
They then administered enhanced pain relief - and worked alongside the Beds and Luton Fire and Rescue Service and paramedics from the East of England Ambulance Service Trust to move him safely from the vehicle and into a land ambulance.
The Helimedix then accompanied the patient in a Land Ambulance to Bedford Hospital. On arrival at the hospital he was in a stable condition.
Magpas Doctor Nick Scott said, “We wish our patient a swift recovery. He was extremely fortunate, given the nature of this incident. We would also like to thank a woman who lived nearby, who happened to be a trained nurse.
“She was first on the scene and initially stepped in to provide first aid and support.”
