An off-duty nurse tried to save the life of a driver who died last night (Monday) after his car hit a tree.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Rugby Road in Lutterworth, near to Lutterworth Golf Club, at 7.15pm and sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene alongside colleagues from East Midlands Ambulance Service.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car which had overturned following a collision with a tree.

“The driver of the car, a man, was out of the vehicle and found to be in cardiac arrest.

“Bystanders including an off-duty nurse had already started CPR which ambulance crews took over.

“However, unfortunately it became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
