Staff involved in road traffic accident
A message from our Chief Executive Daniel Elkeles: “I am sorry to announce that two of our motorcycle response unit (MRU) colleagues were involved in an accident whilst on a training course in North Wales yesterday (7 April). The accident happened in Pentrefoelas.
“Paramedic Mark Pell was admitted to hospital and is in a serious condition. We are supporting his family at this difficult time.
“A second paramedic was admitted to hospital and has since been discharged.
“I know that two other vehicles were involved in the accident and our thoughts are with those involved.
“I would like to thank the Welsh Ambulance Service and Wales Air Ambulance for the support they provided to our colleagues, as well as the North Wales Police.
“I know colleagues and members of the public will join us in sending their best wishes to Mark and his MRU colleague, as well as their families.
“We will provide updates at the appropriate time and ask that people respect the privacy of our colleagues and their families at this time.”
