A workman needed emergency medical help after being run over by a dumper truck on the A14 in Northamptonshire.

The Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was called to the incident on the A14 in Kettering yesterday (Sunday).

A spokesman for WNAA said: “The air ambulance crew were dispatched to help provide rapid emergency medical care for a 25-year-old male road worker who had been run over by a dumper truck. The patient had sustained a large haemorrhage to his groin, as well as suspected leg and pelvic fractures.”

The man was treated at the scene for his injuries, before being transferred by land ambulance to Kettering General Hospital.

A spokesman continued: “Here he received several units of blood, replacing some of the blood lost after the incident occurred. He was also given antibiotics and pain relief to help ease his discomfort.

“WNAA flew to meet the medical team at a landing site near to the hospital, and after 30 minutes the patient’s condition had improved enough for him to be flown to the Major Trauma Centre at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire to continue urgent care.

“The patient’s current condition is unknown.”
