A man was flown to hospital after the car he was a passenger in lost control, flipped over and ended up back on its wheels.

The Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance was called out to the crash in Brixworth at about 11.50am on Tuesday, September 10.

The 43-year-old man was the passenger in a car which had lost control, rolled over and come back to rest on its wheels.

A spokesman for the air ambulance said: “The patient was complaining of pain to his left hip and left hand.

“The crew successfully gained IV access and applied a pelvic splint.

“The patient was then flown to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The patient remained stable throughout the flight.

“The helicopter landed at the hospital just 47 minutes after receiving the original emergency call.”

DLRAA works alongside its sister service the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

They carry out about 1,800 rescues a year between them.
