"treatment by paramedics after road traffic incident"
Posted by Dundee Violet (as ),
In June my wife and I were knocked off our motorcycle at the Bankhead Roundabout, Glenrothes. Travelling north on the A92 in the middle lane, a car crossed our path from the inside lane to take the B921 exit. Collision was instant and inevitable. My first fear was being crushed by following traffic but I became vaguely aware of a vehicle blocking traffic and a good Samaritan coming to our aid. I was incapable of moving but when I heard someone was calling 999 I knew it was only a matter of time before the Cavalry arrived. An ambulance and 2 female paramedics duly appeared on scene. We were given immediate first aid, assessed and taken with due dispatch to Kirkcaldy A&E. We were most impressed with the professional and personable way this ambulance crew went about their work and would like our thanks passed on to them.
I would also like them to be informed that Kirkcaldy A&E did not X-ray my injuries and a subsequent visit to Ninewells A&E diagnosed me with fractures to my left Radius and right Fibula. In addition a broken 4th Metatarsal in my right foot.
