The Great North Air Ambulance Service’s Guardian of the North aircraft and crew were called into action yesterday when a car and tractor collided on a country road in North Yorkshire.
The incident happened yesterday morning, around 11am, near Scorton, which is near Catterick. The 72-year-old woman, from nearby Bolton-on-Swale, had sustained serious chest injuries.
A GNAAS doctor and paramedic team worked alongside road paramedics from Yorkshire Ambulance Service to stabilise the woman. She was then flown to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough in a stable condition.
