Elderly woman injured in RTC


More details have been released after an accident at Salerie Corner, which left an elderly woman with "potentially serious injuries."

The St John Emergency Ambulance Service was called to the scene on Saturday lunchtime, with eye witnesses saying the accident had involved a car and a pedestrian near St George's Esplanade.

This accident came during a particularly busy time for the emergency service - which received 19 calls for help within 24 hours earlier in the weekend. Other cases they were called to included medical conditions and falls but combined it was too much for the on duty staff to cope with meaning two off-duty members of staff were called in to help out.

Guernsey Police and Fire and Rescue Service were called to some of those incidents as well, including the accident at Salerie Corner which happened just after 10:00 on Saturday morning.

The crews on the scene found the woman had suffered "potentially serious injuries" which they treated while she was still in the road before she was taken to hospital.

"The patient was immobilized as a precaution and following the initial treatment by the paramedic at the scene, the woman was transferred to the Emergency Department of the Princess Elizabeth Hospital," said a spokesperson for St John Emergency Ambulance Service.

Guernsey Police said the accident happened at 10:15 and involved a white Hyundai i10 and a female pedestrian.

The investigating officers want to speak to any witnesses or anyone that may have private dashcam footage of the incident which could help their enquiries.

"Anyone that does have information is encouraged to contact PC 100 Simon or PC 137 Drummy at the Police station on 725111," said a spokesperson.
